Susanna Hoffs’ new album, Someday, is a charmingly breezy affair. Her first solo outing, When You’re a Boy, hid her pop classicism under an uneccessary layer of plastic, whereas the production of Someday is suitably low-key, allowing the songs to shine. Musically, it’s hardly a revolutionary affair, and I sometimes miss the the added bite of The Bangles (on fine display on 2011’s Sweetheart of the Sun). No matter: if you enjoy retro-tinged Californian pop as much as I do, you won’t be disappointed with Someday. (Spotify link: Susanna Hoffs – Someday)
