Album Review: Trick of the Eye

Title:  Trick of the Eye (BandCamp, Amazon, CD Baby)
Artist:  Joy Mills (Official, Facebook, MySpace, BandCamp, CD Baby, Last.fm)

Hailing from Seattle, WA, Joy Mills is an alt country singer songwriter with a sultry and sweet voice that is equal parts Natalie Merchant and Jenny Lewis.  In fact, Trick of the Eye very well may be the best record Jenny Lewis never wrote/made.  The record is stunning in its simplicity and gorgeous vocals.  Each song has just enough instrumentation to drive the story without becoming messy or stepping over Mills amazing voice.  From start to finish, Trick of the Eye is an impressive record and a must for fans of Jenny Lewis, The Watson Twins, Natalie Merchant, and the 10,000 Maniacs. 

Thanks to songs:illinois for the find.
