Marina Allen :: Centrifics

The sound of Marina Allen’s terrific second LP is steeped in the late 1960s / early 1970s singer-songwriter styles of Carole King, Nilsson, After the Gold Rush and For The Roses. But it’s to Allen’s immense credit that Centrifics somehow still feels firmly fixed in the present day. This isn’t just a detailed Topanga Canyon re-creation — it’s a skilled update, with its own distinct twists and turns.
