The days go much too long

Dear friends,

1. Jade McNelis has a voice that curls up in the corners like a bright red leaf in the sun and her song Life in Grey is as brief as that leaf's trajectory from branch to street. The tune is hushed, playful and has a tinge of Brit-psychedelia which makes it sound quite unlike the drudgery implied by the title. Despite the lyrics, which hint at some unspecified ambivalence, McNelis' vocal flutters about languidly in a way that says she could never be trapped by something as simple as uncertainty, she's far too content.

Recommended for:

- Those who wish it would stay breezy and cool so you could luxuriate just a little bit longer in the blue sky prettiness.

- Those who love winsome vocalists in the vein of Feist and Regina Spektor.

Ms McNelis, multi-tasking
