her acoustic guitar (and the occasional piano), Jenn Lindsay twists and
turns through an eclectic mix of anti-pop tunes. She shrugs off standard
form and procedure, creating a melodious mélange of underground
tunes. There's a heartfelt sentiment at play, as the guitar is often a
little sloppy and the lyrics tend to ramble with a feverish bent. This
leans to Lindsay's advantage, painting a picture of harsh honesty which
doesn't rely on hooks or catchy phrasings. It's akin to freestyle poetry,
running along with just a hint of structure to keep everything in place.
Throughout the album, she often pops the strings of her guitar in a random fashion, accenting her winding words with unpredictable sharp staccato bursts: "Oh I've gone and done it again / (pop pop) Gone two hundred miles(pop) when I should've gone ten." The effect scatters your concentration, like a ball bouncing in many directions, although the beauty of it is that it doesn't sound intentional. Whether or not is a subtle mind trick, it gives Lindsay a unique edge in her unusual style of playing.
