Take Brooklyn's Cat Martino for example. You won't find 'Yr Not Alone' blaring out at your mate's 16th birthday party as you throw up in the corner after too much cheap cider, but that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed and appreciated by people of that age group. Good quality pop transcends barriers and this is proof. An enchanting and magic piece of dreampop that would happily go on the Radio 2 playlist and likewise be enjoyed by more left-field types. It's a beautiful piece. Cat Martino is, purely and simply, universally good, so enjoy this, whoever you are.
