Amy Annelle
School of Secret Dangers (Hush Records)

By: Alex Steininger

One of Portland, Oregon's best kept secrets - hopefully not for long - Amy Annelle (better known as the front woman for The Places), gives us a taste of her solo offerings on School of Secret Dangers. School of Secret Dangers is a collection of gazing lullabies that are as intoxicating as they are dream inducing. Seducing you with her whispery folk guitar and ample pop sensibilities, than rocking you to sleep with her quiet, yet majestic voice, Annelle delivers an insightful, lyrically sound package of simple, wholehearted nuggets of sonic quietness. School of Secret Dangers is the bar at which modern singer-songwriters should measure up to, a tight recording stripped down to the bare essentials and somehow managing to sound whole in every way. I'll give it an A+.
