If that were true, I think the world would be a better place. But the truth
is that with increased promotion you get increased exposure. Up to this
point I think Oh Susanna has concentrated more on her fanbase outside of the
US (touring, magazines, etc.) As far as US press and touring goes, she's
done very little in comparison to acts that we might consider big (Neko
Case, etc), but would be smallish in the big landscape of pop music.

SLS was my number one twangy album, #2 overall. Death Cab for Cutie was my
favorite album overall. But yes, I loved it.
np: Bleed "Motor Psycho", I got this based on their terrific performance at
Sleazefest this year. So far so good...
