Teng, She's Good!

The third album from the Taiwanese-American who has a unique way of blending chamber pop with folk and contemporary rock, Dreaming Through The Noise takes the genre-bending Vienna Teng into new frontiers. I often feel that there is a lack of conscious decision-making among female vocalists. Whether it is not putting enough effort in to the lyrics and simply relying on their sweet vocal advantages, or not being bold enough throughout the album to set them apart. I think I have chanced upon something here, but I'll leave that for another day.
Vienna Teng is different. It seems as though the lyrics are a primary concern, and although the album lags toward the end, her music is edgy and interesting enough to pull off Dreaming Through the Noise.
The songs on the album run the gamut from the quiet and mysterious (Blue Caravan) to the windy and easy going (City Hall). She's got skills....yo

Buy Dreaming Through The Noise.

Listen to Blue Caravan.
She also has four other tracks on her myspace page. They're all pretty darn good.
