Whispery and quiet stuff. Riphug aol. Of course, that's part of what I love about her! But at least she doesn't take herself all that seriously, and she is utterly unique.
Personally, I love her work. Neile I just love her. She writes about very honest things I had seen her before, at the old , and was mesmerized.
This time, she wasn't quite as good, but I still enjoyed her set a great deal and was completely blown away by the instrumental "Simply Tony.
I had several Lisa Germano albums, but never really liked them. Prior to seeing her, she probably won the award for "artist who I don't particularly like but keep buying her CDs". I thought her set was spellbinding, and from that point on, her music has really worked for me. I remember saying something like "I was particularly struck with how she could make any piece, on any instrument, sound like it was playing on an old scratchy 78 sitting in a giant half-full bathtub". Which I guess was a compliment.
Think angst-ridden, quaalude-dosed bitter young Carrie Newcomer. Her other stuff just really hasn't done all that much for me I'm happy to see this has been rereleased! I like this album quite a bit, and I'm not at all sorry I bought it, but I still think I like on the way down from the Moon Palace better.
All the songs are good. Anyone who already likes Lisa's music will be happy with this one, and if you don't know Lisa, this is a great album to start with.
Her vocals are still tentative and breathy. Many would say the vocals are quirky, as is the music and lyrics, but as it's quite natural it's very much a part of Lisa's charm. I highly recommend this album. The remixed version of the original release has a lot of things thrown into the songs and is pretty crunchy in a haunting way. I don't listen to this that much anymore, but i know i will want to someday Ivo Watts Russell at 4AD convinced Lisa or maybe the other way 'round to retool the album, and it was released on 4AD in its creepier, more atmospheric form.
I actually like both versions. It wraps things up perfectly—how fitting this obsessive, depressing outpouring should end on a note of such gorgeous, hopeless sadness. However, some of the "visualization" were quite intense for me, especially while listening to " Bittner Great, totally individual style.

Turning Into Betty Guillotine Reptile Name almost any under-recognized artist and someone will say that if he or she were only marketed correctly or heard by the right people, a star would be born. It's hard to imagine anyone making that claim about the under-recognized Lisa Germano, whose songs are so personal, ambiguous, and unsettling that even sympathetic listeners can find it hard to gain entry.
Still, Slide is one of the more accessible albums in Germano's catalog, lacking both the harrowing sexual dramas of Geek the Girl and the overt self-loathing of Happiness.
