Go to the Lisa Germano website  Lisa Germano - In the Maybe world [Young God - 2006]

In the maybe world is Lisa Germanoís first release on Michael Giraís Young God label, though she has released several albums through Capitol and 4AD.Young God records seems the perfect home  for her material, that mixers honest, heart  felt lyrics that move through  heart break and dream worlds. But often she has a steel hand in a silken glove, tendency to her songs, slipping out some bitter truths with her soothing tone. The musical side is a wonderful mixed of laid back smudged piano melodies, lightly hazed guitar and touches of Melancholy childhood, run down carnival sadness.

Itís nice to see a female singer/ song writer who's making enjoyable, tuneful piano and guitar music that isnít trying for bland pop. She Also mangers to twist in avant  grade and off kilter touches with such an airy grace. The album seems feather light the first few plays, but each replay it pulls you in further, and further into itís layered world that hovers between folk strum, sing song piano strolls, muffled beats, and some hazy audio background instrumentation .

I canít remember  enjoyed this type of thing, in a very long time, I guess it because itís so well done. All in all an enchanting, rewarding, and beautiful sketched album.
