Served up by a Dutch indie-rock band named after a tennis player (band name is Bettie Serveert), this 2005 offering has been maligned by some as not up to the quality of Palomine or Log 22, but I think it’s just fine thank you. From the mournful lament of You’ve Changed to the slick dance-pop of Versace, these tunes are catchy and Carol Van Dyk wraps her unique sounding voice around them with a jaded vengeance which is pure artistry.

Lover I Don’t Have to Love is a cover of a Bright Eyes song and the American release on Minty Fresh Records includes two bonus cuts, acoustic versions of Dreamaniacs and the title track Attagirl. Classified under the Alternative genre, this is definitely a record to rediscover or check out for the first time.

Here is You've Changed.
