I have now listened to Mieka Pauley’s new album, Elijah Drop Your Gun, three times in very short succession. I know nothing of Ms. Pauley or her work except what I have listened to tonight. And what I have listened to was amazing and a little frightening.
The amazing part is that there is not a single weak or mediocre song in the queue. No disappointment, no itching to move on to the next track. Every single piece is entrancing.
The frightening part is that, for certain lyrics at least, she seems to have been mucking about in my head while I wasn’t looking.
Amazon is offering the entire album as a free download until early March. Based on three go-throughs, I cannot possibly recommend this album enough.
