THE BILLIE BURKE ESTATE-“Let Your Heart Break”

Posted: February 1, 2008 by dillion in Indie Pop

The Billie Burke Estate’s second full-length, “Let Your Heart Break,” is a curious collection of charming pop tunes. There’s nothing offensive or edgy here–much like ‘70s AM radio (think: Elton John or Randy Newman), the focus is on piano-based hooks and toe-tapping, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. “Everybody’s Gonna Die,” despite it’s heavy title, is my favorite track on this light album. It recalls The Beatles’ “You Won’t See Me,” with a crispy chorus eased between sing-song verses. This is a well-produced, clean and clear record. In a world where so much is heavy and dark, it’s nice to know that Billie Burke Estate is producing good old-fashioned pop music.
