Clueless (Amy Heckerling | USA | 97 min.)
Cher, a high school student in Beverly Hills, must survive the ups and downs of adolescent life. Her external demeanor at first seems superficial, but rather it hides her wit, charm, and intelligence which help her to deal with relationships, friends, family, school, and the all-important teenage social life.
A songwriter who “knows how to leave an impression” with “elegantly celestial climaxes, emerald green-glowing guitar work”(Pitchfork) and “smoky” vocals (NPR: All Songs), Cassandra released self-titled EP in 2013.
Now with several tours behind her (as bassist for Eleanor Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces, and Wins with Jason Bartell of Fang Island), and a new record on the way (Summer 2016), she stokes the fire with New York based guitarist Sam Owens (Celestial Shore) and drummer Austin Vaughn (Here We Go Magic). It’s the kind of pop that steals your breath and replaces it with a limb-surrendering rhythm.
