Self-Taught Learner by Lissy Trullie
Lissy Trullie's self-titled new album, is coolly confident in feel, its mostly brisk punk foundation yielding to memorable pop choruses along the way. On the album, dirty guitar sounds and driving, new wave-tempo-ed drums are countered by swirling synths, brass, and layers of heavenly vocals, a beguiling mix of the earthy and the ethereal. The album was produced by TVOTR - Dave Sitek. Trullie's voice and presence is commanding throughout; with her elastic singing, she comes across at times like a modern-day Chrissie Hynde.
