Mimi Page – Breathe Me In

Having read some other reviews of Mimi Page‘s work that compared her to the likes of Fiona Apple, I was a bit concerned approaching her debut LP Breathe Me In.

Between summer blowing chilly goodbye kisses, all kinds of monetary annoyances and just this never-ending inexplicable tiredness clinging to body and brain, I need something REALLY inspiring, a punch-in-the-nose, a flashlight-straight-to-the-eye kind of inspiring.
