Simone Penkethman has been a local musician for more years than she will thank us to remind her of.
Her album “fall” consists of thirteen eclectic songs, which focus on the quirky aspects of human nature.
Her album is laid back with bluesy guitar and soft drumming by Ken Vatcher.
I noticed myself giggling quietly to “The Ballad of a Thin Man” as it accurately describes a self absorbed “bloke”, while “Cry For love” is poignant and heartfelt.
As much as I appreciate this album, I believe that nothing really compares to watching her perform live onstage.
Fans of PJ Harvey and Patti Smith will especially appreciate this recording.
“fall” is available to at www.cardboardcharlie.com.
