Sounds at turns like Aimee Mann or Guyville-era Liz Phair.

I’ve been listening to Bloomington-based indie artist Erin Tobey for years, so you’d think I’d be frustrated by the dramatically different sounds on her newest album: she’s dropped the twee affectation from her warbling, high voice, and has taken to mellow crooning instead. As it turns out, it’s a delight to hear her branching out in so many directions at once. Middlemaze is a rock driven album that sounds at turns like Aimee Mann or Guyville-era Liz Phair. Tobey shifts between genres and styles effortlessly between tracks, and I can’t stop listening to her voice.
