Before you get me wrong, the fun starts with the songs of Lola Marsh. The fact that a band sounds like something or somebody is not a guarantee for good music. On Someday Tomorrow Maybe, a title as infinite as 'Definitely, Maybe', decades of music with a touch of class and style come by in the form that I have come to like with the ascension of Lana del Rey. Singer Yael Shoshana Cohen moves vocally between Del Rey and Stevie Nicks. Slightly nasal and a cool aloofness is her trademark as well. The music she makes with Gil Landau moves between a dark pop, even reminding me of some of George Harrison's solo work of the 1970s, and more modern pop that comes by me here and there, mostly in public spaces. Interchangeable and not much fun. But then that music is not made for me, at least in intent, but for the youngsters of today. This influence disappears totally in the second half of the album. Someday Tomorrow Maybe may have these influences, in part, but is different. This album is, also, made for me.
On the basis of all the above Someday Tomorrow Maybe should become huge in this country. Next to the fact it holds quality songs of itself, there is so much to hear what this country likes in the last 20 odd years, it should become noted. It is early in the year, but I have found my first, tentative favourite album for the long list.
