- Displacement Song by Liz Green
Since when did everyone's voice turn into an amalgamation of Antony Hegarty and those Cocorosie lasses? Its a bit like that syndrome where work colleagues start looking like each other. I mean you should have seen the Norman Records line up circa 2005 - 'The League of Bald Headed Men' indeed. Anyway although Liz's voice has hints of Hegarty, ripplings of t'rosie, there's something about its simplicity that convinces me that this is her actual voice and not an affectation. The A side is a downbeat folk waltz with a melody plucked out of the smoky Suzanne Vega songbook - just voice and guitar - simple, classic. I'm less convinced about the B side though it is a cover of some kind of yiddish folk song with a distinctive 30's feel and I'm sure fills the request of 'something for the flip' adequately while the best source material heads towards her next album which on this evidence I'd be curious to hear.
