Not to be confused with the (male) British film director of the same name, whose breakthrough film was also called IF, the (female) singer-songwriter Lindsay Anderson is a Chicago native whose complex but delicate music occasionally recalls local contemporaries like the Sea and Cake or the Aluminum Group. However, Anderson also has a knack for strong melodies and catchy tunes that keeps IF from being simply a cerebral post-rock wash of sound. Highlights include the lovely and powerful "Two Steps."
