Album review

Missy Roback - Just Like Breathing

Despite a horrible cover and an irritating name, Missy Roback has made a fine debut album. Produced by Rain Parade's Steven Roback and mixed by American Music Club's Tim Mooney, Just Like Breathing is as melodic as those connections would suggest. But dreamy, lo-fi Americana and haunting, psychedelic arrangements are only half the story. Add Roback's voice, which has that angelic quality associated with classic '60s American girl groups, and the juxtaposition is glorious.
