Lisa Germano / Magic neighbor
Lisa Germano - Magic Neighbor (CD, Young God)
Soft puzzling pensive pop)Reflective strange modern lullabies for people
with a heightened sense of perception. Lisa Germano's music has touched us
more deeply than any other artist in the twenty-first century. Sometimes
music serves the simple purpose of providing entertainment...but in other
cases music can go farther than that...much, much farther. In our constant
search for music that is unique and genuine, Germano wins the top prize. Her
sound is so highly stylized that at this point in time she has no
competitors. She operates in a unique genre of music that she herself has
created. Magic Neighbor picks up where Germano's last album (In The Maybe
World) left off. The melodies are heavenly...strangely hypnotic and trippy.
The lyrics come straight from the heart (as always). And music itself is
peculiar and strangely absorbing. And at the heart of the songs are those
heavenly vocals...strikingly subtle yet amazing vocals that can evoke real
emotion in the minds of listeners. Lisa is obviously not making music for
money. If she were, she wouldn't be recording these types of albums. It
would be a lot easier to just create the kind of simple mindless dribble
that appeals to average anybodies. This eleven track album reveals more of
what we already knew. This incredible lady's music just keeps getting better
and better. Over time, more and more people will look back and realize that
Lisa Germano was one of the most important recording artists of this decade.
Until that time...her relatively small yet passionately devoted fans will
follow her anywhere she chooses to go. Music so decidedly beautiful that it
is difficult to describe with mere words. Initial favorites: "Marypan,"
"Kitty Train," "The Prince of Plati," "Magic Neighbor," "Snow," and
"Cocoon." It just doesn't get any better than this...ever. Highly
