CRITIC'S CHOICE

ALT-POP
Move over, Amy, Adele and Duffy: The British blue-eyed-soul brigade gets some serious competition from this Yankee on her debut. Like her Brit counterparts, the singer-pianist has a retro vibe. She harks back to the '70s on the Laura Nyro-esque highlight "Nothing But a Miracle" and the '60s on "Choo Choo," where the bluesy-voiced Birch gives Bible Belt some of that old gospel spirit.
