Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Lindsay Mac

Stop Thinking

2008-10-27

"That is a peculiar way to play a cello", I thought when I checked out Lindsay Mac's You Tube performance clip on her Myspace account. Classically trained Mac straps her cello to her body like she's playing a guitar when she performs. Lindsay Mac's press release describes her as being in the neighborhood of Bob Dylan and Portishead...strange pairing, right? I'm not down with that comparison, but her singing and writing style is similar to DiFranco's for sure. I initially didn't think a cd of cello based songs would be intriguing, but Mac makes it work. "Stop Thinking", Lindsay Mac's second folky/acoustic release will fit nicely in our library with the Feist and Regina Spektor's of the WYCE world. – Sherry C
