If you ask Liz Janes about her new album, Say Goodbye, she'll tell you she wanted to make a soul record. Now, before you start gettin' any James Brownian ideas, let's let Liz explain. Says Liz she loves noise and experimentation far too much to make it straight and, “Besides, I'm not a real soul singer. I wanted to make music with real meaning, that would be nourishing and comforting to the listener. I wanted the music to be inspirational and full of light—without ignoring life's violence.” And now we present Say Goodbye. A wholly new thing. A departure from what came before and an adventure story and hard luck tale all in one. It's a coming of age record, a record about the loss of innocence and the insistence on staying soft, of keeping the meanness of life from ossifying your heart. This is Liz fighting to make sense of the world and offering up a goodhearted, unpretentious experimental pop record.
