Contest Mon Nov 25 2013
Rock Island's Lissie (now based out of California) burst out with 2010's Catching a Tiger, which found her progressing from a folk background into more pop influences. On this year's Back to Forever, she sounds in the neighborhood of Haim, but with an Americana tilt. The album has slick production and Lissie comfortably tackles everything from learning from failed loves to the politics of coal. There's a little Neko Case in there and her voice echoes Stevie Nicks, too. Clearly, Lissie has some good pedigree. Gapers Block's giving away tickets to Friday's show at Park West.
