Courtney Love - Highlights

The Olympia duo (not Mrs. Cobain) are back, with another set of poppy-jangly-acoustic songs. "Highlights" draws its title and cover art from a reference in the song to Goofus and Gallant, reminding me of time wasted in pediatricians' offices as a young boy.

In "Disappearing Lessons" Lois Maffeo changes up her usual rhythm a bit. It's a bit more downcast instead of the usual upbeat cheery rhythm thing she's usually got going on. Her songs, while pretty good, do sound alike, so some variety is welcome.

A: Highlights
B: Shaniko, Disappearing Lessons
