Synopsis

Amazon.com
On the strength of their sprightly lead-off song "Mr. Whisper," Tampa's Pee Shy (now there's a name middle America might have trouble cozying up to) have snapped up some air time on the local alt-radio station, which is a good thing. On the surface, they seem no different than scores of other femme rockers inspired by Liz Phair, The Breeders, and less-inspired derivations like Veruca Salt. Yet Pee Shy score points for remaining consistently infectious even after the single has faded out--a bright, polished apple with cracking lines like "You were holding up the bank of me/nothing larger than twenties please". Their use of unlikely instruments in a pop context is appealing, like the playful marimba set against a mournful clarinet on "Bathroom Floor," or the blustery accordion in "Fear." Primary singer-songwriter Cindy Wheeler has a fully stocked arsenal of wit and wisdom, dishing out the praises of her favorite rock star in the gorgeous, dream-boat love song "Jad Fair"--Criminy! That makes two songs written about the singer from Half Japanese. Remember Rebecca Gates's "Jad Fair Drives Women Wild?"--while guitarist Jenny Morrison has a few choice words about the dumb boys she's been been locked up with in "Much Obliged" and "Too Punk." The music is lush, propulsive, and stormy; a little cocktail elegance here, some snarly guitar there, all wrapped up in one delirious package. A winsome winner from start to finish. --John Chandler

"I'm a big Pee Shy fan. I have two words for all you so serious alternative music fans who have taken shots - JAM PEARLS! Give these gals some credit, they're talented musicians. Sure, maybe they can be accused of having fun with their lyrics; is that such a crime? I recommend both Pee Shy albums to anybody who enjoys listening to catchy melodies and inspired, quirky lyrics. Then again, if you require more angst in your music I suggest you look elsewhere."
Great album for all moods!

"I'd heard a lot about this album and was glad to finally sample it on amazon. I especially like Billy's solid, steady drumming. He's even more amazing in person!"
To show approval, I shake my accordian

"When I walked into this dive of a music joint in Des Moines, I was jazzed in anticipation of the headline band, House of Large Sizes. I planned to sit on the back of my seat for two or three hours before they took the stage. Little did I know that the opening band, Pee Shy, would be the half-underground nineties version of Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page dualing guitars for the Yardbirds. Sure, Pee Shy (3 girls and a guy) are not rock 'n roll icons (yet), but they're dueling accordians harmonized with Breeder-esque guitar, lyrics, and rhythm make them just as addictive.From a collection that ranges from Cash to Marley to Soul Coughing, this Pee Shy album ranks solidly in my top 5."
