Jenny Omnichord 

Bad Luck (Label Fantastic)

Jenny Mitchell is tiny: live, she’s a physically wee specimen perched on a chair with her instrument on her lap. But Bad Luck is a big release for the Guelph indie imp and former Barmitzvah Brother. A full band (including vocals by Halifax’s Andrew Sisk) showcases Mitchell’s fragile voice and her beloved omnichord, providing needed depth without flattening any of Mitchell’s signature quirkiness. More of a storyteller than a songwriter, Mitchell pens off-kilter tales about real-life concerns like pregnancy, childbirth, relationship and touring woes. There are lullabies (“Theoretical Love Song”) and metaphysical speculations (“Skeletal Polymory”), but most surprisingly, there’s a club-worthy synth dance tune (“Lifeline”), too.
