Laurie Morvan Band:  Breathe Deep (Screaming Lizard 0005; 55:2 rating: 3 stars)

Power and technique characterize Morvan’s blues-rock guitar style while a light urgency infuses her singing on a package of title-revealing songs (such as “I’ve Had Enough” and “Hurtin’ and Healin’”) she wrote for this album.  Unlike the many bands that self-destruct in white-hot flames, these five Californians pack heat with an intelligent approach that makes use of dynamics and built-up tensions.
