Poe – Hello – Review


Hello (Atlantic)
by Nik Rainey

With a name like Poe, I was half expecting a kohl-rimmed Goth chick with death-lit pretensions. No such dumb luck. Hello is well-manicured, accessible femme eclectica that tries on styles (hip-hop, near-grunge, light jazz) like Salvation Army fatigues, overlaid with unlocked-diary imagery alternately potent (“Trigger Happy Jack”) and pallid (“Fly Away”). Not bad.
