Format: Audio CD
Everyone's been asked at some point in their life to pass judgment on a close friend's artistic endeavor. I don't know how most people feel, but I dread being asked this favor. I hate to lie, and I'm a very judgmental person, which makes for a bad combination when all an aspiring artist wants is a little validation. So as a defense mechanism my response to the inevitable "What do you think?" is always the same: "I like it." Often a lie. But then of course, sometimes I actually do like it, and in these cases I'll usually elaborate a little bit: "No, no. I really like it."
Mirah's You Think It's Like This, But Really It's Like This is one of those cases. Her first full-length album is like one of those revelations when you realize that someone close and dear to you has real talent. Not that Mirah is my friend or anything, but her delivery often has the feeling of someone giving you a bedside serenade or whispering melodies in your ear. Maybe it's Mirah's penchant for the second person, but I can't remember feeling so personally drawn in by a cycle of songs in quite some time.
It would be easy to relate Mirah to just about any of the female artists who have preceded her. And though she has a vocal style comparable to Juliana Hatfield and often writes lyrics with a sexual slant a la Liz Phair, she comes across as far more intelligent than the former and far more innocent than the latter. In fact, it's only by a minor miracle of her abilities as a songwriter that she's able to pull off this sort of alchemy and create an album that bristles rather than bombards with sexual tension as she delivers lines like "You've got pollen on your nose/Where've you been?/Where've you been?

Mirah is another in the growing line of stripped-down, lo-fi, simple, but somehow heartwrenching acts. That being the case, it's hard to describe this music without the aid of a million referents (Moldy Peaches, Cat Power, Azure Ray, April March, Edie Brickell, etc.).
While I want to dislike this sparce music which consists mostly of Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn's delicate, sophomoric vocals and light tremomlo guitar, repetitive lines like "if we sleep together, will it make it any better" from "La Familia" make my inner 17 year old indie grrl do cartwheels. Run-on sentences aside, this album is the kind of stuff Jack White probably listens to on rainy days. "Sweepstakes Prize" builds from a do-wop wink into a fuzzy, rocking song. "Person, Person" recalls some on Donovan's sillier moments. The range of ground Mirah covers is represented best on "This Dance," which starts off full of lament, and threatens continually to build through three musically varied verses.
The music is undeniably light, but it is also diverse enough to keep things interesting. It's a guilty pleasure that will probably become a permanent part of my personal rotation.

From the summer camp innocence of "person person," destined to become the teen anthem of lamented absence; the eternally adolescent complaint of "this dance"; the twenty-ish angst of "la familia" and then splintering into "murpy bed", "engine heart" - what's the use? You go where she takes you and you're happier for it.
Every tune tells a tale, every melody sparks a mood. "archipelago" pays a slight but decided tribute to Merrilee Rush - an interesting nod from so disparate a stylist - and as noted before, Liz Phair lurks in and around a good part of the disc, but Mirah's individuality and freshness leap out in a fun and enchanting series of works that will quickly become secret faves.
I wish I'd been around when the conversation that inspired the title took place. Overheard at a party? Part of a heated phone call? Whatever. Just fun.

mirah is simply wonderful, there is no way around it. her sweet, often childlike voice delivers melodies that give me butterflies. her songs are simple and might even sound minimal to some, but once you take a harder listen you're bound to discover a secret world full of childish simplicity mixed with a kind of subtle sensuality that anyone could easily adore. a 16 track masterpiece through and through! skipping songs or picking favourites on this cd just won't work. what are you waiting for? buy it already!

well, this was just the luckiest find ever. this album comes as close as possible to perfection, kind of a lo-fi aimee mann/tori amos - unpolished passion.
i totally chanced upon this cd, and i can't stop listening to it...i can't leave the house or even go into a different room without wishing i could carry the music with me. it's beautiful.
this lady clearly has a sense of humour that is helping her through a time of loss and natural disasters. that this album has been so under-publicised her in the uk is criminal.
listen to some of the tracks, but as the previous review says, there's no favourites, track-skipping is not necessary. just buy the cd on chance and let it take over your life the way it has mine...i dare you...
