Music Review: Lissie, “Catching a Tiger”
An exponent of Los Angeles’ neo-folk scene, Elisabeth “Lissie” Maurus’ full-length debut, “Catching a Tiger,” follows the still-unfolding trend (see Ra Ra Riot’s “The Orchard”) of the underground wrapping its arms around classic Fleetwood Mac. Recorded in Nashville, Tenn., with a number of producers, “Catching a Tiger” consequently feels inconsistent, like Lissie’s strong voice has been grafted into several crazy-quilted squares. So, some tracks succeed like gangbusters, and others feel like self-conscious stretches. But nearly all sound like they were cooked up in Laurel Canyon, before new wave and hair-metal took over the clubs down on Sunset Boulevard.
