Dear Nora, thanks for the great first album

If twee pop's your thing, you can't go wrong with this criminally-overlooked debut album by California popsters Dear Nora. It's got shambling guitars, girl-girl sha-la harmonies, sparse production, and killer melodies. The album, which was recorded by Aislers Set frontwoman Amy Linton, came and went with barely a blip in 2001. I found my copy in the dollar bin that year -- for half-off. It was some of the best money I spent in 2001.

Anyway, we added the album to Rhapsody today. Click HERE to listen. My favorite songs include "Springtime Fall," "Everyone's the Same," and "Round and Round." But honestly, they're all good. Enjoy!
