- "She's Bound To Get Hurt"
Summer Fiction, the moniker of Philadelphia singer-songwriter Bill Ricchini, is one of the more heartwarming projects to emerge out of the city in years. On his self-titled debut album, Ricchini melds together strings, winds, harpsichord, piano, guitar, vocals and a wealth of interesting percussive instruments — most of them recorded in his bedroom. The album was later fleshed out by classical performers and contributions from fellow Philly bands BC Camplight and Buried Beds.
