Song(s) of the Day # 1,142 Molly Burch

I'm a sucker for pretty much any song that begins with the drumbeat from The Ronettes Be My Baby. The opening song of Molly Burch's debut album, Please Be Mine, sets off like that. And then her smokey voice breaks in and the deal is sealed.

From then on it's all romantic, beautifully styled retro pop music in the tradition of Spector's Wall of Sound, Patsy Cline, David Lynch soundtracks and Brill Building. Burch herself comes across as a more restrained version of Angel Olsen and one without the least interest in her grunge affectations as she clearly much prefers the early sixties when people knew how to keep these things in check.  It's all rather wonderful!
