Hidden Vagenda

Lead Performer: Kimya Dawson; Producer (group): K Records

The chalky voice of the Moldy Peaches offers her fourth solo release, Hidden Vagenda, and at this point, Kimya Dawson’s unaffected earnestness, firm sense of morality, and pretension-cutting playfulness are starting to seem like a miracle. These qualities are distilled in the shimmering ”My Heroes,” but, really, they combine over the entire album — which includes unironic mentions of everyone from Jay Leno to Julian Lennon — with Dawson’s acoustic guitar, toy piano, and tootling brass accompaniment to achieve the rare bliss of adult pop wisdom.
