CD Review: April Smith And The Great Big Picture Show “Songs For A Sinking Ship”

Before one of my best gal pals and I go out, we always decide whether it’s going to be a red lips night or not. Red lips usually mean we know where we are going and we feel totally confident.  Songs For A Sinking Ship, released last February from April Smith And The Great Big Picture Show, is a red lips album.

But, influenced by music from the ’30s and ’40s, as well as by Tom Waits, Songs For A Sinking Ship is in that case not rock and roll.
