Sixpence None the Richer
Squint Entertainment

Leigh Nash, the lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer, glides though each song as if she'd been singing since birth. And Matt Slocum, the primary songwriter and adroit guitarist supplies the chords and lyrics that hook the listener on their third album.

The collection of tunes reaches its apex on the seventh cut, "I Can't Catch You." Slocum grinds away, whipping out chords while Nash fills the emptiness with her sweet voice. The next song, "The Lines of My Earth," brings you down and forces you to think about your last sweetheart.

The rhythm section lead by J.J. Plasencio, has its most fun on "Love," where Slocum attempts to mirror U2's The Edge on his opening riffs and Nash bellows "I need love, I need love." Other must-listens include "Anything" and "Easy to Ignore." If you like Luna, The Sundays, or 10,000 Maniacs, chances are you'll find this Nashville-based band to be rich indeed.
