Editorial Reviews

Press play and it might surprise you! If you're ready for this meeting it might even like you. Put your headphones on and you'll hear the pounding, or subtle sound, of a piano, organic strings, wood, breathing, cracking; a world of sounds so natural, you might think the music is happening in your room and the singer's voice is getting closer and closer to a whisper in your ear.

Julia Marcell's debut album is a collection of stories and, as she describes them herself, ? simple stories, to make sure everyone gets them, but still not too simple, to make sure everyone gets them in a different way.?

Musically, classical punk is possibly the best way to describe her style: classical because of the intentions and punk because of the execution. The sound is raw, yet positive, and it?s not only instruments you hear in the completely live recording, but the musicians' actual presence in the room. You can hear the shoes of a dancer, the accordion breathing, and all the fun it is to play with anything you can grab and make use of.

Funded by 657 people from all over the world, Julia's album is the first release by a Polish artist through Sellaband.com ? a website built on the innovative idea of fans investing in music. Produced by Moses Schneider and recorded in Chez Cherie studio in Berlin, the album features sounds made by singer-songwriter and piano player Julia Marcell, a string quartet of very young musicians from Poland and 4 guest drummers playing sometimes simultaneously. Mixed by Moses Schneider in Transporterraum and mastered by Michael Schwabe at Monoposto, the album captures the same spirit of fun and love of music it was created in.

I can't quite recall how I found out about Julia's music, except that it was through some type of puzzle or riddle website long ago back when she had just released Storm EP and it was mentioned off-the-cuff by the webmaster, but I'm delighted to see her progress from Storm to here. It may sound a little pretentious to talk more about the artist than the music, but keep in mind with this review that you're not hearing the music and analyzing it in a sense of meter or rhythmic quality as much as you are listening to Julia sing and express herself. You might read that as "oh she has no musical discipline" or "oh her songs aren't REALLY songs" but it's not what I'm trying to say at all; her songs are very musical, but she will fit the music to her story and not the other way around.

I hear a lot of musicians take their songs, their stories they want to tell, and then try to cram the story into the music so it's precise and can stay within the confines of their guitar tabs or music sheets. They snip parts out, rewrite lyrics to be obscure, or have insufficient lines of mystical words that make the song very difficult to interpret (think Blinded by the Light by Bruce Springsteen; it's a great song about his life but is the exception that proves the rule and shows Bruce's strengths as a writer). Julia doesn't do this, and her songs are very free-flowing because of it, and it gives them the rare quality of genuine, heartfelt music.

Okay, specifics: I'm a personal fan of the upbeat tunes like Carousel and Night of the Living Dead. Carousel gives me a sense of childlike simplicity and evokes memories of my times spent at the Fair when I was younger and a music box my mother received during Christmas from my brother, all very happy memories.

Her voice is enchanting. Each song tells a story.
overall, an engaging and enjoyable album.
my three favorites are The Story, Fear of Flying and Night of the Living Dead.
also lovable are Outer Space, Married to Life, Billy Elliott, Dancer, well, pretty much all of them.
the tracks i sometimes skip are Words Won't Save You, and Side Effects of Growing up & Carousel. but that's mainly because i want to rush to Fear of Flying.
Fear of Flying is one of my favorite songs. i never tire of listening to it.
FYI, Put Your Headphones on is a novelty track, no music.
i originally stumbled upon and purchased this album about a year ago from a different music site.

I found the 2nd CD of Julia Marcell (June) bought it and fell in love - 'fresh' music, great voice' good lyrics - you can feel that this woman is experienced in music and feel it. Then I started searching and found that she has another album - I was wondering if it is also good or she just "got her style" recently, so I bought 'It might like you' and ... I'm totally amazed - I can't say which album I prefer cause both are different - 'It might like is very melodic, you can here a lot of piano and it 'takes you to different spaces'. Simply saying: I love it!
