MilkBoy is the kind of venue where if you’re not careful, you might accidentally knock over an opening band’s gear. It’s the kind of place that does apparently soundchecks in real time for a live studio audience.

Her three solo records are ear candy for audiophiles that never seems to wear thin, buoyant and quirky, with her trademark asynchronous lyrical ...
