lisalisa freieck lisa freieck is wrapping her view on things in fancy songs that don't need many words to explain how intangible, freakish or sobering life can be. but no suggestion of affected self-pity - her songs come from the bottom of her soul and if once self-pity is found then only authentic one. guided by a gentle, expressive voice which mostly is backed by subtle guitar playing, sometimes interrupted by interludes like organ or glockenspiel and occasionally joined by a loose band formation, she conjures undisguised, conclusive compositions between a blue smile and calculated irony. listening to her doleful stories one can confidently dispense with the rest of the world for some short time or, in case of getting their point, maybe for a little while longer.
