Brash Nash.

The mail lady at my real jobby job has come through once again! If you're not a female who lurves songs that rip the opposite gender a new one, then you might not dig this. I, however, happen to be one of those females, in case you somehow missed that over the past couple of years. So, I was very happy to take some of my downtime to check out this CD by Kate Nash that just landed (literally) in my lap last week, Made of Bricks.

You probably don't want your preteen daughter listening to Nash's uncanny manner of insulting any man boy who has crossed her path in a very wrong way with songs like "Dickhead" and "Shit Song." But then again, one of the singles, "Merry Happy," manages to balance out all of that hate at the end of the CD with an aura of, well, happiness. Luckily, the other thing I love about this album is the fact that this is not just some chick and her guitar. Nope. It's a mix of electronics and a thick British accent, and it's oh-so-lovely. It's kind of like when you go to Cold Stone Creamery and make your own mix of all your favorite things to put in the bowl, and it tastes so perfect, you're convinced it should be bottled and sold. If you have no idea what I mean, just trust me . . . it's pretty much the best thing ever.
