Knowing, worldly, delicate but mordant pop born out of wisdom, mostly, and the desire to share it.
Dore's voice is small, pearly and oddly timeless – the Hopper etching on the cover is from 1922 – and her songs consider life in all its cheapskatery and riches. The sound is a sophisticated acoustic chamber-pop with vintage-jazzy overtones. Song titles are a clue to everything: "Cleaning Out my House", "His Wife", "The Last Laugh". Domestic music which deserves to find its way into more homes.
