    Indeed she does.

    I was remiss not to mention Juliana Hatfield: her album "How to Walk Away," which came out in August, is one of the year's best - deliciously melodic and moving all the way through. Her voice, writing and guitar gifts have matured wonderfully.

    np: "So Alone"

    Oh you'll probably like them if you like X-ray Spex, I know I did. They are so obscure. Search them. I think you'll like them, especially the song "Janitor"
