  • "The other day I came across one of the most descriptive and appropriate genre titles. The lead singer of Dragonette called her previous work 'Tampon Rock.' This genre is girls or women with guitars or a piano, singing poetically about their emotions and their inner worlds. Jewel, Aimee Mann, Tori Amos, Peaches, Liz Phair and their queen Sarah McLachlan are excellent examples of this. This is the kind of music that makes you believe you need a uterus to have real emotions." (From Double-Tongued Dictionary)
