Suburban Sprawl and Alcohol Female vocalist L.P. steps it up on her sophomore release with anew band. Lyrically, the album is solid – just check out”Suburban Sprawl and Alcohol” or “Little Death.” Her vocals however,are unique, powerful and full of passion. She sounds like an operasinger who smokes cigs, and would rather sing punk than a cappella.But her versatility allows her to fluctuate between the styles. Thealbum does retain mainstream sensibility, but again her style ofsinging sets her aside from others she might get compared to. Theguitar riffs range from straight-ahead three-chord punk to rock toballads. You’ll even hear a little Southern influence … hopethem damn Yankees don’t care, ’cause she’s a New York local.
