Brûler Brûler – Mini Review of JESSIE TORRISI

Jessie Torrisi – Brûler Brûler – Mini Review
Posted by Staff on September 9, 2009 – 11:41 pm -

Release Date: August 9th, 2009
Record Label: Wild Curls Records
Genre: Indie

Deciding to break off from group efforts, the TX singer/songwriter Jessie Torrisi, has dosed us with her solo record “Brûler Brûler.” Thankfully, Jessie has done more with this record then simply giving us a french lesson (”Burn Burn”). She has charmed the soul and atmosphere out of everything from a guitar, to a harmonica, a banjo, and even a kazoo in the making of this record. It all has a quaint quality to it, while feeling like something from current mainstream indie blended with an almost country twang. Her correlation to acts like Feist and Regina Spektor are spot on, as most of the tracks from “Brûler Brûler” either feel like a trotting love song, or a slow, yet whimsical, level of swooning solo artistry. Jessie Torrisi has created something special here. She’s not eccentric for no reason or boring to death (as much of indie has become) and is instead creative and passionate — leading to a record that has many slowly paced gems just waiting to be unearthed. ~ Staff
Score: 4/5
