Clever and Enchanting
Kathy Fennessy | 10/10/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The spare folk-pop on this 1993 release fits neatly between Northwest bands like The Spinanes (Rebecca Gates is a former collaborator) and Northeast bands like Jenny Toomey's Tsunami. Lois' commitment to the DYI aesthetic is another connection shared with the two camps. A worthy follow-up to the Stuart Moxham-produced Butterfly Kiss, Strumpet features a strong collection of economical, melancholy-tinged tracks. K Records' Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, Dub Narcotic Sound System) is credited with the lo-fi production. The set concludes with a touching accapella rendition of "The Way I Feel Inside" by Rod Argent (The Zombies, Argent). "Evening in Paris," which opens the set, and "The Trouble With Me" ("The trouble with me/is that I'm trouble") represent Lois at her clever, enchanting best."
Lois is the best role model a girl could have

"These songs make a great soundtrack for your teen-age bedroom, even if you're in your thirties. Lois is timeless. The bass playing sounded a little funny, but her singing and guitar playing is right on. Her songs are great. I just had a cup of hot chocolate with her."
Cool tunes!

"I have owned this one since it came out! It is a catchy and sweet. All the songs and lyrics are well written. The Trouble with Me is one of my favorite songs. Good CD to add to your collection!"
