I Love Your Glasses

I Love Your Glasses by Russian Red
Released: Jun 2008
Label: [PIAS] Digital Spain
In Spain, they're calling Lourdes Hernandez the "Spanish Feist," and one listen to I Love Your Glasses might convince you there's something to it. Hernandez's little-girl voice has just enough pathos to keep it from being precious, and her songwriting doesn't linger too long in one place -- for every journey inward, Hernandez also looks out, fixating on the particulars: an elbow, the wall, a cigarette. It's this razor-sharp focus that allows her to milk the most out of these deceptively simple songs. For some relief, she allows herself a melancholy cover of "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" at the end.
