Retreat From The Sun
Jesus! Brad Wood steps in to produce your record and the next
thing you know, you sound exactly like Liz Phair. Granted, Wood
has produced a bunch of stuff that doesn't sound like Liz. For instance,
5ive Style sounds like the Meters, but that's just them, I guess.
The point is, that dog. with Anna Waronker on vocals is a packaged alternative
Phair without the balls. I feel obligated to like her, though. After all, her
brother was the original drummer for one of the best rock bands of all time
(Walt Mink) and who is now the drummer for Beck.
But being related to someone cool doesn't make her cool. And that's been proven.
Think of all the cool people who have dumb relatives. There are thousands. Anyway,
that dog. Not as exciting as you might think, but somehow okay in their
own special, packaged alternative way. There you have it.
