Alejandra O'Leary CD release party

Local artist, Alejandra O'Leary is having a CD release party for her new album Broken Mirror Baby tomorrow at Crazy Wisdom. I recently received a copy of the album and have really enjoyed listening to it. Broken Mirror Baby has a dreamy, etherial quality reminiscent of early 90's alt rock. There is a simple sincerity in the ablum that takes me back to 1994 when I was a 4th grader staying awake at night with my ear pressed against the radio. I don't really know if I can explain it better than that. The music on Broken Mirror Baby is rich, but not over produced. The songs are catchy and well put together. Check out the track When Will They Learn?:

Something about this album reminds me of Polaris, the house band on Pete and Pete. Maybe it's the subdued guitars, or the clairity of the vocals. Regardless, you should attend this CD release party tomorrow night. Doors open at 8:30 for this free show.
