Lois – Bet the Sky
Acquired: Love Garden Blowout Location, Used, 2009
Pretty much just the same as Strumpet. Here, “Shy Town” is the jam, and it works for exactly the same reason “The Trouble With Me” works: Because I think it's going to be “Some Jingle Jangle Morning (When I'm Straight)” by Mary Lou Lord, which is an awesome song. Although it doesn't quite achieve that kind of pop greatness. The big difference here is that she's got Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty playing guitar on a few songs and she's got Tiger Trap drummer Heather Dunn drumming. Basically, a fancy line-up change but it works, as Bet the Sky is better than Strumpet, despite following the same pattern.
