Charlotte Sometimes actually copped her name from a British kids' book about time travel, not the Cure song. But the Cure is a telling reference: The NYC songwriter and her band possess a vintage, pre-alternative sensibility, but with a thoroughly contemporary indie vibe. Charlotte sings in a breathy warble with a perky delivery that offsets her dark lyrics. "How I Could Kill a Man" not to be confused with the Cypress Hill song, though it does make passing reference to the rap classic finds her vulnerable, pissed and clever. Imagine the Cardigans, but with dance beats and more keyboards.
