Little Spark by Jessie Baylin
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Blonde Rat
On Little Spark singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin rides the songbird zeitgeist (everybody from KT Tunstall to Adele) by crafting dreamy acoustic pop dipped in a vaguely nostalgic feel. "Love Is Wasted On Lovers" is sweet like early 1960s Brill Building magic. The following track, "The Greatest Thing That Never Happened," contains some nicely swaying horn work that really pushes the Carole King comparisons to the fore. The melancholic closer "Seasick" is an instrumental, oddly enough, one that sounds like vintage Fleetwood Mac meets modern Nashville (minus Stevie Nicks' vocals, of course).
