Juliana Hatfield

I had a pretty good interview with Juliana Hatfield, the Boston-area singer/songwriter who started with the Blake Babies, sang some backup on my favorite Lemonheads album (It's a Shame About Ray, what a great pop record!), and now, with How To Walk Way, has recorded 10 solo albums. I really like the new one, too, most of it...very pop, just about too slick, but not quite, and there's this one song called "Just Lust" that kills me. Richard Butler from the Psychedelic Furs guests on one song, but you can just barely hear him...Here's the interview in yesterday's Venus online:

Though she’s been in the music business for 20 years, Boston singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield seems a bit young to release an autobiography. Still, her new memoir, When I grow up, in tandem with her 10th full-length album, How To Walk Away, mark a definite turning point in Hatfield’s career.


And here's the video for "This Lonely Love"
