The breathy exaltations of I Was Totally Destroying Itís Rachel Hirsh open Vexations, the power pop quintet's most recent studio album. However, by the second track, she passes a nuanced baton to John Booker, who takes lead with the charm and swagger of seasoned troubadour Nik Frietas, whom is best known for his breakout role in the latest effort by the Mystic Valley Band. While itíd be downright sexist to concede that Hirsh carries the same vocal appeals as Jenny Lewis or Maria Taylor, it must be noted that the too-cool, self-affirmed Saddle Creek sound is evident, possibly by the posturing of label alumni James Helper.
