Liz Janes sounds a bit like a mashup of everything Sufjan Stevens has ever experimented with and the voice of a girl who grew up listening to pop radio in the late 70's. Sometimes awkward, to be sure, but most of the time overflowing with warmth, vitality, and a smokey sort of personality that is unapologetically and unabashedly everything she wanted it to be. Maybe swagger would be a good word for Liz. She has a certain experimental swagger that coincided nicely with Sufjan's backdrop of sound.
