Charlotte Sometimes actually copped her named from a British kids' book about time travel, not the Cure song. But the Cure is a telling reference. The N.Y.C. songwriter and her band have a vintage pre-alternative sensibility, but with a thoroughly contemporary indie vibe. Charlotte sings in a breathy warble, with a perky delivery that offsets her dark lyrics. "How I Could Just Kill a Man" -- not to be confused with the Cypress Hill song, though it does make passing reference to the rap classic -- finds her vulnerable, pissed, and clever. Imagine the Cardigans, but with dance beats and more keyboards.
