Lorraine LeckieMartini EyesBy Jen Levins
Lorraine Leckie is dark and broody. Quirky, yet simple. The production throughout the album is beautifully stark, with arrangements consisting mostly of acoustic guitar and vocals. The piano-based "I Met a Man" has the feel of early Regina Specktor, while "Listen to the Girl" is full of Emily Jane White style melancholy. It is rare to find an artist who can stand up so well without musical adornments or lavish processing. Lorraine Leckie's Martini Eyes is short, poignant, and worth many listens.
