This album may be difficult to find, perhaps because it was just too unconventional for the mainstream. If you're looking for a new sound, then please, go ahead and put out the extra cash for this brilliant album. Helicopter Girl's voice is a sort of dusky Billie Holiday. It is harsh, but soft at the same time. Her withdrawn but passionate expression just seems to draw me in.
