Atlanta's singer-songwriter Faye Webster was only 16 when she recorded the folk-ish album Run and Tell (2013). If Faye Webster (2017) was largely a dull experience of mellow country ballads, the somnolent country-soul lullabies of Atlanta Millionaires Club (Secretly Canadian, 2019), like Room Temperature and Hurts Me Too, forged a new genre of the kind of intimate pop inaugurated by Sade in the 1980s. The jazzy elements in Come To Atlanta and Kingston further expanded her palette.

I Know I'm Funny Haha (2021) was marked by the languid sound of the steel guitar in such a way that it was impossible not to recall soft rock and country-pop of the 1970s, often wrapped in a somnolent lounge atmosphere. Amid memories of Carole King (Better Distractions) Burt Bacharach (Kind Of) her tiptoeing ballads with no major refrain/chorus/hook evoke a monotonous existential drift. The ultimate specimen of her dreamy whispered slocore are Sometimes and Overslept that sound so fragile they could break into pieces any time. The bluesy In a Good Way and the slightly more vibrant dream-pop of Cheers with a thumping quasi-disco beat don't seem to belong to this album but maybe points to a more sellable future.
