Juliana Hatfield, whose career stretches back to the early 90’s, thought she was finished with songwriting until a certain presidential election happened. Like (we predict) quite a few artists, this jolted her into creativity, speedily writing and recording fourteen songs of vivid music. The results are here on Pussycat. Out on American Laundromat.

Pussycat is an excellent representation of Juliana’s vocal and instrumental skills and style. There is anger here but plenty of love, too. “Impossible Song” should be the most popular tune on AM or FM these days, “what if we tried to get along, sing an impossible song …”.
“Good Enough For Me” highlights her rock guitar tuning and playing talents and “Sunny Somewhere” gives us a pleasant bit of melodic keyboard noodling. If you’re looking for the “angry” songs you’ll find them and they hit with a big, well-deserved wallop.
