You know how just about every solo female singer has to put up with endless comparisons to Cat Power and/or Björk? They should have to put up with endless comparisons to Lisa Germano too. Since the early-’90s she’s been writing piercingly emotional songs that imagine a girly world far more real and rewarding than the standard unicorns-and-daydreams dioramas. “The Prince of Plati,” from her brand-new Magic Neighbor, is quintessential Germano: so tender and direct and gorgeous and close that it hurts (the good way), with darkness and light swirled together and inseparable. Just like in real life!
