Can't say I know, but it wouldn't surprise me other way. It's a very "hip", sharply produced album which I would expect to hear playing at Starbucks. That said, I really dig it. The reviews mentioned PJ Harvey, Sioux, and Kate, so I picked it up off that. However, songs like "The Wizard" really give me a Tori Amos feel with vocal tiers and held notes. I think some of the lyrics are a little clunky especially during the more personal songs like "Sad Eyes". Eastern flourished third person, slinky bass tracks like "Sarah" make it up for for me though.
