"It Ain't Rocket Surgery"

Wendy Bailey


A polished, five-song EP from Encinitas' Wendy Bailey, "It Ain't Rocket Surgery" offers an easy-on-the-ears flavor of power pop. Like a punched-up Edie Brickell, Bailey writes accessible pop songs that lean a bit toward the folk side ---- and then delivers them with a confident delivery wrapped around a warm, rich voice.

It all comes together at its best on "She Walks Groovy" and "Harmless," a knockout pair of pure AM-styled pop-rock nuggets. With jangly guitars and a loping beat behind her oh-so-cool vocals, both songs are classic 4-minute radio songs, textbook examples on writing a hit tune.

True, radio has changed and a well-crafted song with a stellar performance is no longer enough to get on the air. But for those of us living in San Diego County, Wendy Bailey is making some very nice ear candy.

Wendy Bailey plays at 9:30 p.m. today at the Tiki Bar in Pacific Beach, and at 8 p.m. Sunday at Brick by Brick in San Diego.
