Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights serve up songs ranging from folk to punk, making a really “Good Egg.” In her latest album, Leeds bares her Big Apple pride, imagining a Dino on the Upper West Side and gently needling the uber cool kids from her Williamsburg nabe in “Hipster in the Making”: “I ride my bike in my skinny jeans / that I bought at the thrift shop off Bedford you see.”
Speaking of the clothes making the man, er, boy, as Halloween approaches, in Leeds’s “Confusing Costume”; she sings about a penchant for sporting homemade disguises, despite bristling over the question: “Who are you supposed to be?”
And the delightfully geeky Leeds joins with the Pop Ups’s Jacob Stein in a tuneful discussion of idioms in “The World is Your Oyster” where she cheerfully egg-sploits every yolk, er, joke.”
