Album of the Day
Named after a childhood pen pal of frontwoman Kay Hanley, Letters To Cleo was among the most appealing bands to emerge from Boston in the 1990s. Blending alternative rock and power pop hooks, the group cut three albums for Warner Bros. subsidiary Giant Records, the last of which was 1997's GO! With new drummer Tom Polce behind the kit (and The Cars' Greg Hawkes playing keyboards on a few tracks), the Peter Collins-produced collection has the feisty energy of the quintet's acclaimed debut, and such Hanley originals as “I Got Time,” “Veda Very Shining” and “Find You Dead” sound upbeat even when the lyrics aren't. As GO! celebrates its 20th anniversary, it's the perfect time to reopen Letters To Cleo.
