When I was much younger, I dreamed about getting up the nerve to talk to a boy in my elementary school class. I had my first crush and no clue how to deal with it. I bought a card for him and kept it until I was deep into my twenties. I kept it at first because I was too scared to give it to him and later because it reminded me how being ?new? felt. After broken hearts and bad relationships, the reminder of a crush from afar made me hopeful for things to come; things that finally did come in the form of someone who would buy a gift for someone and keep it for 15 years.
With that said, I?m a sucker for angelic, baby soft girl music, probably due to somehow enjoying the remembrance of my youthful admirations and the moments when my fear didn?t get the better of me. Liz Isenberg?s voice is dreamy and soothing. Isenberg is a Juliana Hatfield for a new crop of young women.
The confessional lyrics appeal to any fan of folk music and the dewy quality of her voice will appeal to indie fans. This is another one for the sisters (see Paula Frazier review).
I adore the unapologetic feminine qualities of this genre of girl pop/folk. It?s very sweet and makes this season?s baby doll/shapeless yet infinitely comfortable dresses even more appealing. So my advice is to find a copy of this release, upload it to the Ipod, put on your jelly sandals, send a love note and make a clover necklace like the ones that helped to cause your first bee sting.
According to the CD cover, it is titled, ?Seaport, Seeport, Seaport?. I?ve also seen it listed as ?Seeport, Seaport, Seeport? or ?Seeports, Seaports, Seeports.? These are slight differences but perhaps enough to cause a tiny headache. Key Songs: There are many good ones but a few of my immediate favs are ?Pop Song?, ?You Will Love Me?, and the Bjork-ish like ?Boys to Kill?. 9/10 -- Erica Rucker (10 April, 2007)
