Musical innovation: Molly Marlette

September 3rd, 2008

I go on a lot about latest, known and unknown technological innovations and other things we should know, or revisit again.   But it’s not too often I touch on this subject here – Music!

For those of you who know me, I’ve always been in-tune with music, so much that my music collection and lyrical capacity perhaps far exceeds most peoples musical collections throughout their entire life.  (I once went through a period of listening to music at 1.4x and 2.0x the speed in order to listen to more music faster….)   And I won’t even go into knowing the lyrics to every song I’ve ever heard and my 255 song TMBG Playlist…

Anyone with an appreciation for sheer and pure talent – should take the opportunity to check out this artist.    Recently interviewed by LA CityZine, she’ll surprise and delight you in one fell-swoop leaving you wondering how a talent so young is able to innovate and deliver on such a level.

Her adoption and use of instruments, riffs and tonal ambiguity is packaged like a veteran of musical delivery.

A true lyricist, miles beyond the trite, predictable rhymes of the average singer/songwriter. Instead of forcing her lyrics upon us, her delicate delivery quietly calls the listener to lean in closer.The Allumette – EP

Molly Marlette doesn’t reinvent the diary-turned-lyrics wheel on her debut EP The Allumette; her wheel is just more interesting. From the first few bars of the opening track, “Sleep Must Heal the Heart,” it’s clear that this isn’t going to be another girl and her piano therapy session. Marlette, 20, is a true lyricist, miles beyond the trite, predictable rhymes of the average singer/songwriter. Instead of forcing her lyrics upon us, her delicate delivery quietly calls the listener to lean in closer. -The Deli LA

I definitely encourage you to check out her siren’s song which will woo you over as she has smitten so many.    From the moment I heard of her, I was hooked – You will be too. :)
