Nova Scotia’s astounding crop of female singer-songwriters keeps on giving. Jennah Barry arrives with a lively collection of songs recorded at the Old Confidence Lodge in Riverport. It sounds like the room is full of players, though not so dense that timely “wooo-oo-ooh”s by Barry won’t considerably sweeten a tune. Icy of heart, “they fight till they fall apart” is the verdict on young men in the title number, after what appears to be lengthy reflection. “Slow Dance”, on the other hand, is a most gentle seduction. What some pejoratively label “diary pop” is only a starting point to an album like this one.
