Luna Tart Died
Laura Freeman claims to be channeling a mysterious film star and singer called Luna Tart for this album. Luna Tart is of course an alter ego of Freeman's
but who am I to complain? She pens charming cabaret-jazz songs and warps them in a delightful vintage sleeve.
Freeman plays the ukulele and sings wonderfully on "Crazy Circus Lady" which is a real treat. "Don't Get Nothin' Done" is a charming little jazzy number
with a vivacious and near-crazed lead vocal set to a piano backdrop. "Just what you were looking for" is a sweet and sour little ode to prostitution sung in
a quasi-innocent voice.
We end with the bittersweet "Life's a party" which means Freeman's indulgence pays off and makes for a good listen.
