Review: Would-Be-Goods

“Brief Lives”

Easy listening rocky folk songs that stagger and amble along in a pleasant manner and ought to appeal greatly to those fans of “diva” rock and rollers (think Lilith fair) who reside on the folksier side of things. ┬áVocalist, Jessica Griffin, doesn’t evoke a significant range with her vocals but by remaining true to her own voice’s range, and remaining deceptively relaxed manages to curl up inside one’s alimentary canal and gently soothe the cochlea with the sweet buttery kisses of her words like a cat languidly napping on an old ladies lap, playfully sinking its claws into the colostomy bag.
