A sweetly sexy ode to kissing, ”Mouth” is the most hummable song from the Australian singer’s promising debut album of thoughtful ballads. Merril Bainbridge’s literate, tasty lyrics (”When I kiss your salty lips/You will feel a little crazy”) and gentle pop melody perfectly suit her mellow, folky delivery. The tune may inspire you to plant a big wet one on someone you love. B+
