Erin Muir: Somebody’s daughter

Erin Muir is a singer-songwriter who left the wilds of Minneapolis (and what appears to be a vibrant music scene) for the mundanity of L.A. but she is forgiven because she is a great songwriter. A sort of Gothic Princess but not like black makeup, like a brooding Daphne DuMarier which is a touch too chick flicky except the strings are insane on the title track of her invisble new album (at least i can’t buy it and I would) The Poet’s Lovely Daughter. Muir’s calling card is a dusky and deep voice and the sexually ambigious lyric is strange and disturbing.

All of the five tracks on her myspace are fabulous, even the flamenco flickered “Shadows And Slit,” even on the cover of “Baby It’s You” which I was ready to loath -a pointless exercise, I felt, because, come on pop pickers, if you’re gonna cover the Shirelles (I saw em at the Town Hall ten years ago and was completely fucking thrilled) dig a little deeper but I like the lack of production and I love the falsetto ending.

Muir should come to NYC -she’d be perfect opening for a band like Woods… In the meantime, stream what you can’t download.
