Side B

Hey Bro

He definitely wasn’t thinking about Buddy Holly when the composer Chopin wrote the words, sometime in the late 19th century, “Simplicity is the final achievement.” But it’s Buddy Holly who comes to mind, and Chopin’s wise aphorism certainly applies, when you hear the relentlessly cheerful yet hurting songs of Louise Burns, from a distaff Western Canadian gunslinger who’s already an industry veteran at the age of 24, and whose solo debut has been too long coming.

“What Do You Wanna Do” is the first single off the EP, with a Holly-meets-Joe Meek vibe, all slathered in tambourine and acoustic guitar, then marshaled with a woodsy sounding snare drum. A restrained solo and upbeat-yet-plaintive vocal complete the picture on this instant classic.

It seems unlikely that anything would ever stop Burns from making music. She plays nearly every instrument on Mellow Drama. It’s a pure expression of musicality and talent, and not something you could ever put a lid on. More importantly, Mellow Drama finally opens the book on a personality that was submerged during the artist’s long apprenticeship years, ringing with all the influences Burns breathlessly lists – “The Pixies, Neil Young, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash and June Carter, Harry Nilsson, Sam Cooke, The Shangri Las, and the Smiths, too many to name, had a massive impact on who I am…” – but never at the cost of her own voice.
