Santa Monica 2009 [no label, 1CD]

Live In Session. KCRW, Santa Monica, CA; February 18, 2009. Very good FM broadcast.  Hosted by Jason Bentley.

Listening to the Lily Allen catalogue is like visiting Epcot or Las Vegas: the songs are set randomly all over the world of musical genres (Afropop? Check! Cajun stomp? Check! and so on) and all burnished to a high shine. This music is light as helium, a sonic souffle covered in musical meringue that melts in ear. It’s all carbs and calories: it’s probably not very good for you and, eventually, it would probably make you sick, but IT IS DELICIOUS! People go to Epcot and buy churros for a reason. Enjoy. - mrsaureus

  2. Fantastic! We love a bit of Lily round our way. I was turned on to her by my daughter and much to her astonishment, I liked it! Anyone who samples Professor Longhair is alright with me!

    Great start to the week Big O :)
