Album review from Stanford University’s KZSU

My album “Rebecca Schiffman” that came out last year has just recently found its way on to Stanford University’s radio station, spending two weeks in the Top Ten last month! This station review is meant for internal use for DJ’s, but I like the genres they put me in like “European baroque pop” and the mention of “observational comedy” so here it is.

“New Yorker Rebecca Schiffman’s self-titled third long play is produced by Money Mark. It’s a pleasant exercise in 21st century singer-songwriter quirkiness. Similar to Cate Le Bon, Schiffman has managed to construct a peculiar narrative built around elements of traditional folk music, observational comedy, and sophisticated pop music arrangements. I’m particularly a fan of the ridiculously ingenious lyrics. If we can break it into musical categories, the record is a mix of contemporary European baroque pop, 21st century American folk, and 1990s jazz-pop. Pop Neoyorkino con mucho sentido del humor.”
