Juliana Hatfield "Weird (American Laundromat)"
Few things are as enticing as a new collection of songs from power-pop master Juliana Hatfield. Weird (American Laundromat), her latest, is a jangly, catchy, wryly funny reminder of why you love rock music so much. Hints of everything good about rock music here, from the Crazy Horse noodling that ends “Staying In” to the new wave synth hits of “Sugar” to the chunky Cheap Trick chords of “Paid To Lie.” There is very little to say about the many talents of Juliana that hasn’t already been said far more eloquently than I’m capable–so I’m gonna cheat and let her music do the talking. Check out the video for ”Lost Ship.”
