Boys Don’t Cry

Rumer brings back a 70s feel.

Rumer brings back a 70s feel. This collection of cover songs suit British vocalist Rumer’s Karen Carpenter-style voice. She has a pure voice with a touch of soul and R & B and a great feel for crafting songs to make them her own. Her throwback style reminds me of my childhood while offering appealing modern versions of easy listening hits. This album features covers of “Soulsville” by Isaac Hayes, Hall & Oates’ “Sara Smile,” and “A Man Needs A Maid” by Neil Young, as well as songs by Paul Williams, Todd Rundgren, and Townes Van Zandt.
