Anna Burch – Quit The Curse (album review)

As my daughter gets older and gets a little more demanding on what she listens to on the radio, it is fun to sprinkle in my music into the equation. Or as she calls it, Daddy Music. She follows Waxahatchee, Courtney Barnett and Julien Baker on Instagram among others. Anna Burch is the latest addition and it is because she put together a rewarding album of well-written and well-crafted indie pop music that we can bond over.

While Quit The Curse is her debut, Burch has been around for awhile. She was one of the lead singers of Frontier Ruckus, a band that Oz was particularly fond of. Since then she’s fronted another band and completed grad school, all the while these tunes were slowly building. With a slight push from Stef Chura, the album started to take life.

The album is such a wonderful blend of 90s fuzz with indie pop that tackles life. Whether it be struggling to find love on the opener, 2 Cool 2 Care; scoring some drugs on Asking 4 a Friend; or trying to end a relationship on the title track; there seems to be a sunniness to Burch as she makes it through the day.

Burch is going to be touring this spring and will be down at SXSW. I’m hoping to cross paths with her at some point.
