Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Jill Sobule

California Years

2009-05-11

This is Jill Sobule’s first release on her own record label, and get this, this album was made possible by Sobule’s fans who came through with more than $89,000 in donations to finance it, how cool is that? On this record, Sobule documents her recent relocation to the West Coast with a series of songs that blend the hallmarks of her career: “storytelling marbled with telling details, sarcastic wit and easy-to-hum choruses.” Jill has songwriting skills that transcend her one-novelty-hit wonder status (1995’s ‘I Kissed A Girl’). -Reviewed by LaRae
