Piano and strummed acoustic guitar open this song and you'd be forgiven for filing it away in the 'tasteless and forgettable' category for a moment. But then Jen Gloeckner opens her mouth and transforms the song into a thing of sheer wonderment.
Gloecker is from the small Midwestern state of Iowa and is steeped in the traditions of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. This sounds like neither of those legends however - in fact there's nobody else this can be compared to really. A dreamy ballad, you can just close your eyes and float away with it, especially when the saxophone kicks in.
She also plays all the instruments herself and has produced the single as well. Wonderful stuff, it's just a shame that the edit of the single we were sent out faded out obscenely early. Track down the full version and lose yourself in bliss.
