Soft vocals and chilling rhythmic melodies are what start to bring this entire record together piece by piece. Caroline Says is a cracking addition to the singer-songwriter scene, bringing with it a collection of experimental pop and folk-style indie in this nine-track release. 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong is available on Vinyl LP and CD.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 02 August 2017
Caroline Sallee made this album when she moved back to her parents after college. A time in your life that can be seen as a retrogressive step but one which allows time for self inspection. Those times were some of the most important of my life and when I remember the furious dusting my mum undertook when I announced I was getting my own place I think of the ending of a period much required in order to move on.
Caroline has set these feelings to music on a lovely album that is reflective and also has a sense of wild creativity where anything goes. It has a sun splashed September melancholy that has shades of the earlier work of Catpower or a more suburbs friendly take on last years Eagle/Deer record. She switches between introspective slo-mo ballads and more watery and upbeat moments which capture the Real Estate brand of jangle pop. It's one of those records that like those made by Sparklehorse don't seem to be affected by wild changes of mood and pace. The most lovely upbeat moment comes six tracks in Gravy Days and it's spindly guitar lines and multi-tracked backing vocals.
It's sweetly naive music that's always on the verge of falling completely to bits and could be one of those slow growing albums that eventually everyone owns.
