Jennifer Logue - Pretty
Coming to you by way of NYC is Jennifer Logue, a young, bright, rising star on the alternative country/singer-songwriter scene. She's released two EPs so far, but claims this 2nd release Pretty to be her first "official" release as it signifies more of who she really is as a musical artist. Fair enough! This album certainly leaves no room for confusing that fact; these songs are all direct highlights of her quirky, upbeat personality and there's little room for ambiguity or confusion. Apparently the physical copy of the EP will have 7 songs; my digital copy only has six. So let's touch base on those, shall we?
"Damned" is easily the most rocking cut of the whole set, a groovy anthem to the modern working girl. Jennifer's lyrics are almost always straight forward, her singing voice potent and strong enough to help carry the lyrical points straight home. "How Much I Love You" has some great pop flair to it, especially during the chorus and the vocal melodies within. The song that stands right out is "Incognito", which must have hit home with her as well as it has an accompanying music video and all. It's got more indie charm than the rest, more honesty in Jennifer's lyrics regarding her personal space and how, despite feeling like a small girl in a big city, she's able to blend in and get along just fine. It's all very poppy, all very clean-cut and cheerful, and it works. You'll find her at her most emotionally peaked on "Sigh", a very well-written song, more mellow and moody than the rest.
Despite knowing some of our regular readers will pass this by, it's worth noting that Pretty has charms to sooth the savage beast in many of us; anyone with a shameless love for female pop artists who do it honest and come from a pure, love-of-the-music sort of place, Jennifer Logue may be just what the doctor ordered.
