Post Trash Says June McDoom Offers “Something Truly Great”

Post Trash is out with a review of With StringsJune McDoom‘s newly-released four song EP. “It is something in McDoom’s voice and light, airy approach that carries her music here. While some artists use string arrangements to cover up some possible deficiencies, McDoom and her friend Sammy Weissberg, who helped her with the arrangements, use the strings as a complimentary element to enrich the music. The covers of Judee Sill’s ‘Emerald River Dance’ and the traditional ‘Black Is The Color of My True Love’s Hair’ (McDoom cites as inspiration versions by Tia Blake and Nina Simone) get another dimension with subdued strings and McDoom’s ethereal voice, both, complex songs that many other artists cannot truly muster.”

The site continues, “At the same time, the two originals, ‘On My Way’ and ‘The City, not only measure up to the covers but show that McDoom is a songwriter that will bring her listeners something truly great.” See the full review here, and catch June McDoom live if you can:
