Jennifer O'Connor: Here With Me

Jennifer O'Connor
Here With Me
Matador Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Jennifer O'Connor is pretty much what you see is what you get. She is not flashy, she is not that upbeat and her music is pretty straightforward. With all of those somewhat underwhelming statements what you should know is that Jennifer O'Connor has a superb voice with well penned songs that capture pure feelings and raw emotion, which simply stun the listener and helps Here With Me hit all of these highlights right on the head!

Key Track: "Xmas Party"

Band With Similar Fire: Jenny Lewis
