Alex Da Ponte - All My Heart cd (Archer)


Memphis pop chanteuse swinging for the charts!


Ultimately what Alex made happen was a thesis for 20-something self-discovery. All My Heart is bright, fresh and biting, as honest and brash as it is knowingly self-conscious: that perfect juxtaposition of emotion that pop music has been trying to capture for decades. Guiding you through it is Alex da Ponte, her voice earning comparisons to Jenny Lewis and Karen O, and her style (a blend of femininity and punk undeniably influenced by 90s alternative) to Courtney Love’s Hole.

Standouts on the record include “Dinosaur,” a simple and surprising alt-pop love song (a gentle little dinosaur / but your heart sure weighed a ton), the sharp, witty post-breakup gem “Tell Your Friends,” and of course, that hit: “Nevermind,” a sweetly sung indie anthem whose title phrase again seems to capture that indecision of this perfectly undecided decade.

While working with Blue Barrel Records meant Alex was able to record All My Heart at Music+Arts Studio, she held to one philosophy from Nightmare — “we had a dream team then, so I had to have a dream team for this record, too.” This time around the dream team included Rick Steff and Roy Berry on keys and drums (Lucero), Geoff Smith on bass (Star & Micey), Jonathan Kirkscey and Jessie Munson on cello and violin and Robby Davis on guitar.

And now the girl who used to hate the idea of taking center stage says she's settling in to the idea that all eyes may be on her come spring. "These songs are me,” she says. “I'm documenting my own life and creating these things because that's what I want to sing about. I feel like I am claiming that this year."
