Crystalline Electro-Pop Bliss

Laura Harley was once the guitarist and singer for the Minneapolis-based band Sliver. She has been her own for the past few years writing and recording her first solo effort. The self-titled album was recorded in both Minneapolis and New York City.

The album as a whole is euphonic and purposeful. Laura's songs and beautiful voice have an authenticity about them that is completely endearing. You believe she is ripping pages from her life -- stories of search, struggle, hope and courage -- putting them out there for you to see.

This quality puts her in a class far beyond the standard fem-pop confection or so-called guilty pleasure. We will be anxiously awaiting the next release from Ms. Harley.
