Harper Lee is made up of Keris Howard and Laura Bridge. Howard used to be in Brighter, who recorded for the Sarah label in the early '90s. All the hallmarks of the stereotypical Sarah sound are here: the melancholy songs, the gently strummed guitars, the synth strings that hum morosely in the background, and the wispy and sad vocals. All three tracks sound like they were recorded in 1991 by a Sarah band -- Brighter, even. Any indie popper who longs for the return of the Sarah sound should hunt this record (and their full-length CD, Go Back to Bed) down and clutch it to their trembling, anorak-clad bosom.
