    The Memphis-born, Brooklyn-transplanted singer Megan Reilly assembled a supergroup of sorts (including the Pere Ubu bassist Tony Maimone, the Two Dollar Guitar and Cat Power guitarist Tim Foljahn, and the Mekons drummer Steve Goulding) for her debut album, a collection of subtle, whispered confessionals occasionally punctuated by surprisingly iron-lunged vocals. "Tinytown," an R&B-driven diary entry about her hometown, shows some grit amid its angst, while "Girl" is an opaque, brooding track featuring Reilly's voice pursued by snaking guitar lines, and "Annie B." is joyful, old-school punk rock, powered by a take-no-prisoners bass riff.
