Throughout Aimee Mann’s career, a career that spans a quarter century, she’s written sweet nuggets of pop that serve to lay her emotions bare. Her catalogue of songs-songs for herself, songs for her listeners, and songs that tell stories about mistakes made and promises broken-come from deep within those soft, squishy places that people never let you see. Ever since she took the helm of ‘Til Tuesday, the band that catapulted her front and centre into the music world, she’s been a lyrical songwriter who’s been able to move seamlessly from those concrete, cerebral ideas that pick at all of us in the still of the night, to those ethereal, emotional ones that none of us are willing to say out loud, especially not to a room full of strangers. And that, that right there, is what makes Mann’s music special.
