Album Notes
Bibi Farber is a singer/ songwriter /guitarist in NYC. Her second CD "Second Kiss" features a collection of extremely hook- laden songs of the pop persuasion. This CD is more piano based than her first CD "Firepop" which was produced by and features guitarist Richard Lloyd of Television. She spent four years playing guitar in his band, and continued to develop her unique style of Television- influenced guitar playing for pop songs. Bibi's song "Shine" from the first CD was featured in it's original version in a Kodak commercial last year.

"Second Kiss" is the next step in this songwriter's progression. Produced by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Jay Farrar, Screaming Trees, etc) it features piano-based pop rock with tasteful guitar, insightful lyrics and unforgettable melodies. One song is about a boy in heaven looking down at the little brother his parents now have- a clone of himself. There are songs about everything from meticulous men to newborns to aging great aunts to telling your lover to please talk less. There are some nods to chamber pop, power pop, garage pop, piano ballads, straight-up rock songs, and two songs that benefit from a completely contemporary production, with drum loops and samples. It hangs together as a whole, because the songwriting, the voice and the storytelling is strong and consistent. Her voice is even stronger and more beautiful on "Second Kiss". The same rhythm section appears on this CD: Peter Stuart on bass and Ira Elliot of Nada Surf on drums. Andy Burton (currently on tour with Ian Hunter) covered the keyboards- from grand piano to mellotron.

Her influences include Jason Falkner, Pete Townshend, Alanis Morisette, David Yazbek and The New Pornographers. But in a nutshell: classic well-written pop from the last 50 years.

She is gaining noteriety for her songwriting and an interview will be featured in the next edition of "Songwriter's Market", a yearly publication for songwriters.
Check it out- you will be humming tunes for weeks to come ...

real melodies, thank heaven
It's been said if the guy on the street can't whistle it, you don't have a song. There are 11 honest-to-god songs on this album, and you'll find yourself humming along with all of them. It does take more than melody to make a song, and Bibi delivers with everyting from observations on relationships to ethics. If you're sick of the drum-machine-and-chants format that passes for pop music today, the antidote's right here.

Tom Herling

Bibi Farber's second CD shows a remarkable amount of growth in her voice and songwriting, while still holding on to the energy and enthusiasm of her first CD "Firepop." Her voice is fuller and richer, and her writing reveals a new depth of emotion.

Some songs, like "Verbal World" and "Dizzy Day" make great car-driving music, while others, such as "Does it Have to be Christmas," show her tender side.

The overall sound is sure to stick with you. I'm sure you'll want to keep this one on the top of your CD player.

Greg Teetsell

Second Kiss=Major Step
Second Kiss shows what BiBi's voice and melodic sense promised with Firepop. Second Kiss is a different work, obviously, with the sense being more about storytelling in Second Kiss. For "Bloodline" alone it is worth the price.
