Katharine Whalen - Dirty Little Secret (CD)
Katharine Whalen, former front-person in the roaring nineties swing band Squirrel Nut Zippers, returns to music following a short hiatus with her first solo album in seven years, Dirty Little Secret.
On her startling new solo album, Dirty Little Secret, out June 6 on M.C. Records, Sale sets Whalen's jazz croon against modern electronic effects and percolating rhythms, with impeccable popcraft. The title track sounds like something Burt Bacharach might have written for Dusty Springfield. - Raleigh News & Observer
