"Words Cannot Describe" is a sweet little song that sounds as though it were written for a rich families wedding in the 1940's!

Great song-crafting Mirah. A friend actually gave me this cd as a gift after visiting me in Japan. It was extremely listenable that was my first impression. "A million miles," "100 Knives," "Of Pressure," "Archipelago." So many incredible songs here, and Mirah definitely plays with different tempos and emotions here, displaying a wide range of emotions.

Cool "layers of low-fi" recording. There's something really unique about the way this record sounds. Great songs. And her voice is incredible.

Interview: Thao and Mirah

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

In November 2009, singer/songwriter Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn moved to the Bay Area, and a friend of hers suggested that she should collaborate with a couple of other indie musicians who'd recently moved there: Thao Nguyen of Thao with the Get Down Stay Down and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-YarDs. After an initial gig by Thao and Mirah proved fruitful, the two of them toured together (as Thao and Mirah with the Most of All), playing… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn’s debut full-length is a true indie pop triumph. From beginning to end, You Think It’s Like This But Really It’s Like This hovers majestically on a cloud of songcrafting genius and, as the title suggests, is constantly in a state of shapeshifting. Tones change from elegant to pensive to heavy but still manage to drift by graciously with the help of Mirah’s wistful voice and intimately personal lyrics. A great deal of the instrumentation is assisted by the Microphones’ Phil Elvrum, but he only complements Mirah’s lonesome yet optimistic vocals as she rethinks the relationships that continue to haunt her. A certain cheapness in the production of You Think It’s Like This — perhaps the work of a four-track recorder and vintage instruments — also lends much character to the overall tone of the record. The guitar fuzz actually seems to translate the feelings of “the earthquake…making the house shake” in “Of Pressure,” and the hollow reverb of “La Familia” intensely echoes Mirah’s heartbroken vocal wanderings. A masterpiece of lo-fi beauty. – Ken Taylor
