You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This
A ukelele and a voice -- that's how Mirah's debut album starts -- at that should be more than enough to hook most listeners. Distinctive from start to finish, You Think It's Like This ranges from the plinky simplicity of "Million Miles" and "Engine Heart" to the bass-swinging "Sweepstakes Prize" to the Elliott Smith meets Elizabeth Cotten lullabye "Person Person." Produced by Phil Elvrum of the Microphones, this record is a like a cool breeze blowin' through your headphones. Scoop it and then check out Mirah's current release, C'Mon Miracle.
