Through Toledo by Greg Laswell
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Vanguard Records
San Diego's Greg Laswell is already a critic's darling, and with the right marketing his second album will give him a proper shove into the mainstream. Through Toledo is an impressive collection of densely lyrical, deeply melodic indie pop that refuses to settle into predictability. "Sing, Theresa Says" kicks things off with a crackly, plaintive Americana vibe, which quickly gets cut with straight-ahead guitar rockers ("Do What I Can"), minor-key piano musings ("High and Low") and Brit-poppish grandeur (the killer "I'm Hit" and Coldplay-esque "Long Way Around"). Laswell -- on guitar, piano, drums, and production -- is clearly more than just another singer-songwriter.
