The singer-songwriter Cynthia Dall has Liz Phair's crafty artlessness and breathy, double tracked vocals, though on her second album she arguably does more with less, with her songs framed by only a guitar accompaniment and Jim O' Rourke's spare production. Her dark lyrical vision is leavened by a charming delivery and a musically palatable way of presenting sometimes painful subjects.
