THE 405 REVIEW: Lisa Papineau
LISA PAPINEAU – RED TREES Label:Sargent House After having been in one of the best (and sadly unknown) bands of the 90s (Pet, for those keeping the score at home) and after guest starring in way too many bands (this woman is a proper genre hopper), Lisa Papineau delights us with a second solo album, Red Trees. It’s perhaps this genre hopping knack that the lovely Ms. Papineau has that...
