Maggie McClure

Time Moves On


Street: 02.11

Maggie McClure = Meg & Dia + Michelle Branch + Veda

Filled to the brim with cutesy pop confessionals and whimsical, dreamy instrumentals, Maggie McClure masters the small-town-girl-meets-big-city vibe. With tracks like “Central Time” and “Reset,” which detail her move from Oklahoma to Los Angeles, combined with her sugary sweet vocals, McClure demonstrates that just because a concept has been done many times, it doesn’t necessarily have to suck. Keeping its bubblegum sweetness simple and fairly clichéd, her lyrics relatively transparent and its composition upbeat, this album is good for a fun, easy listen, but not much else. –Allison Shephard
