Sometimes you can't remember where you found your music, but if the music is great that all does not count anymore. When I discovered Melanie Penn's debut album, back in January (I just checked it on last.fm) it was on repeat for at least a few days and I was and am still loving every single song on it. Composed mostly of originals Wake Up Love her debut album, is a fun, well-arranged pop gem. The arrangements pull conceptually from a whole host of singer/songwriters – a dash of Sufjan Stevens, a heaping scoop of Paul Simon, and references to Sixpence None The Richer, Over the Rhine and Emmylou Harris. The front half of the record has some of the more adventurous ideas, like “Wake Up Love,” with it’s Russian dance breakdown near the end, while the second half gets a little more intimate and straight-forward. So don't forget to try the free album sampler and buy the album if you like it.
