MIRIAM: Nobody’s Baby: CD

Miriam Linna is an original member of the long-lasting garage rock band The A-Bones as well as co-founder of the very storied Norton Records. Her roots to the early U.S. punk rock scene and continued dedication to ‘60s garage rock can be seen through both her band and her label. With these things in mind, it makes sense that the sound of this record—her very first solo album—would fit right in place with any expectations one might have for it. Part ‘60s Phil Spector girl group sound and part ‘60s garage psychedelia, the record feels like it could have come out in the ‘60s in both sound and aesthetic. It has just enough swagger to keep things interesting. It ultimately delivers the goods with twelve great songs that are very much worth repeated listens.
