Following up on recent entries at The Mystical Beast and Spoilt Victorian Child, I checked out Bullette's music. And I'm happy to report both writers are right: this is an exceptional set of songs. Because the songs are all available at her site, I'm not posting any here - but what most impresses me about them is that they're simultaneously musically diverse but clearly the product of a particular musician's perspective and taste. Too often, "musically diverse" is another way of saying "it sounds like a compilation...of ten different mediocre bands in ten different lame styles," or that a musician has no sense of self and has merely been digging through the last several Officially Pronounced Hip styles at Pitchfork...but Bullette (you can think of the name as several puns, even though it's also just her surname) sounds instead like someone with a well-stocked music collection who loves and understands the different sounds and styles she works with rather than merely aping them for someone else's approval. Not to mention that what's cool doesn't seem to be in the least a functional criterion for her music: some of it, to be sure, would impress people hanging around outside cool record stores, but some of it would puzzle them or piss them off. No matter.
My only quibble is that the three tracks with the most synthetic atmospheres are grouped together near the end, which makes the difference in their sonic atmosphere stand out a bit gawkily. (The other quibble isn't mine: as Dana points out, a few tracks could be shortened a bit.) But this is definitely music that, even on first listen, makes me want to hear more, and makes me anticipate what Bullette will do in future recordings.
