Music Review: 'Hush' and 'It's Like This'

We review new albums by Rickie Lee Jones and Jane Siberry

Posted on

Two girls — one a savvy street kid, the other a dreamy unicorn doodler — curl up with songs they probably sang at sleepaway camp. Jones covers Steely Dan, Traffic, and the Gershwins; Siberry nursery rhymes, Irish ballads, and ”Shenendoah.” Both capture beauty and joy so idiosyncratically intimate you’ll blush; your favorite will depend on your preference for street life or dream catching.
It’s Like This: A-
Hush: B+
