Emilie Mover “Seems so Long”

Acoustic singer/songwriter stuff, and she has quite the calming voice. Her melodies use this perfectly, too. “Born in the Wrong Time” has strings that complement the track well.
“Break Up Melody (Pain & Regret)” is so beautiful that I don’t even want to get into a hyphenation debate. She can do whatever she wants when she sounds like this, and that includes the use of ampersands. Sweet holy moly.
Deceptive song titles abound, although it really has more to do with my senseless expectations. There’s no reason a song called “Dance All Night” can’t be about slow dancing. I mean, really, it belongs in an eHarmony commercial. And it’s not even necessarily about slow dancing, but when you see that title, you expect something with a purple sticker or at least a BPM over 100. That’s OK. What matters is that it has pretty harmony during the bridge.
“Mean Man” is the last track and a little slower than the rest, if that’s even possible. Maybe you listen to this one in the morning after binging the night before with a bucket of chicken. I’m not here to tell you how to live your life.
This could be one of my favorites of 2011.
