Cannonball Jane pitches herself for fans of the Go! Team,
St Etienne and sassy girl-group pop. Enjoy any of these and you will
love her frothy, infectious sampledelica. The opener,
Slumber Party, is a
rollocking gem built around a Carole King-inspired piano riff.
Fine Reminder mixes dreamy doo-wop oohs and aahs with
old-school breaks and beats; and
Brave New World has hand claps and a mood that matches Air’s
Kelly Watch the Stars
for euphoria. It could all be a musical car crash, but charm and sassy
beats win the day. And to complete this mini-masterpiece’s feel-good
credentials: by day Jane is a music teacher, Sharon Hagopian, and she
recorded it in her bedroom.
