Hannah Georgas - This is Good


This is Good


No Video


On her debut album, next-big-thing Georgas runs the emotional gamut: perking sweetly with romantic hope on the Metric-y title track, playfully down on the delightful drone-popped Bang Bang You’re Dead!, betrayed on the bittersweet Your Ghost and old-timey jazz-folk jaunty on Something for You, where the eventfully voiced songstress pledges that she can be red and she can be blue and she can be “whatever you want me to.” Georgas could be compared to Kate Nash or Liz Phair or Emily Haines, and she could share monogrammed bathrobes with the embattled Guergis. But, on a confident, quirky platter of indie-pop, she’s made a name for herself. By Georgas, I think she’s got it.
-The Globe and Mail

The point is that the title of the Vancouver singer's This Is Good debut is actually a bit of an undersell — the record is actually quite fantastic. Georgas artfully straddles the indie/pop line like Feist and Emily Haines before her, but her personality should win over any detractors bothered by the artistic overlap. And if that doesn't, the songs themselves should.
