CD REVIEW: Elisa Peimer - EP

Artist: Elisa Peimer Website:http://www.elisapeimer.com/ Genre: Pop CD Review: A 4 song ep showing considerable promise, as a singer and a songwriter both.
'Before You Say Goodbye' rocks into being with 'I see you moving toward the door / I see that distant look in your eyes / I ask if you'd like any more / your answer doesn't come as a surprise'. Backing guitar so fresh, you'd swear it was built that morning.
'Leaving Here Tomorrow' reminds me incredibly of Peter Frampton's 'Baby, I Love Your Way'; if PF's could be cranked down a speed or 2.
Depressing subjects, but treated musically in a way that makes the singer - and perhaps you the listener - come out feeling stronger than she went in. She takes you on a short emotional trip, one you've been on many times before, with many other songwriters, but you're glad she's along. Like a friend who can take your mind off things, for just a little while.
I look forward to a full album, because I can guess there are going to be some treasures there. This ep is like finding the treasure map.
