If you're looking for middle-of-the-road pop, packaged to sell with a solid sound and that crispy, overcondensed production, you could do worse than Linda Gaal and the Six Senses' debut release, So ... You Think You Know Me ... You may recognize Gaal from her stints with the cover bands the UltraViolets and SQuiNT (who, as a cover band, leap decades and genres in a single bound, covering Bob Marley's "One Love," Poison's "Talk Dirty to Me," Alanis Morissette's (gak!) "Hand in My Pocket" and Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca"). Gaal's got some hefty vocal cords that can take on the hits with precision and, er, blind dignity, and she transfers this ability into her own songs. Of course, if you despise the current fare being played on the radio, you'll no doubt find their debut equally uninhabitable, for this hits smack-dab in the middle of the road. The band celebrates the release of the album at the Hi-Pointe on Friday, Sept. 17.
