Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs

Heard the NPR tiny desk session (which was brilliant), Stella was defenitly under my radar. Not only she has an impressive voice (she hits high notes with extreme accuracy), she is funny, she has clever lines about her deceptions (sentimental in tricks to professionnal in Tricks), warnings (beware of the dogs, old man) and some more personal songs (specially Boys will be boys according to some interviews. Pretty visceral track about sexual assault).

In my opinion, the track "Beware of the Dogs" is a standout because it combines all aspects that I appreciate about this album.

While this album doesn't avoid some issues to its genre (sometimes lyrically repetitive, specially love thematic, doesn't necesarily push the composition, etc), it's an extremely solid one and an artist to take a look.
