Mia Doi Todd Manzanita
- Words: Nick Follett
- Label: Plug Research
Mia Doi Todd has never been the type of artist people "kind of" like. With her operatic voice and uncomfortably intimate songwriting, one either finds her singularly under-appreciated or dismisses her as an over-hyped LA hipster. Manzanita will do little to dissuade either. Backing by fellow scenesters, including members of Beachwood Sparks, The Tyde, and Brian Jonestown Massacre, lends an AM pop and countrified folk tinge (à la Sandy Denny or Colin Blunstone) replete with strings and horns. Despite all these special guests, Ms. Todd is at her best when accompanied only by her own guitar.
