I'm usually pretty good at judging a CD by its cover. At the very least, I can generally guess the genre or general sound of an album based on its artwork. But I couldn't have been more wrong when I saw the suggestive cover to Lissy Trullie's debut EP, Self-Taught Learner.

It turns out that Lissy Trullie makes smart, off-kilter guitar-pop with lots of swagger and catchy hooks. The band is fronted by Lizzy McChesney, a petite, leather-clad songwriter who sings with a meaty growl. She's originally from Washington, D.C., but now lives in New York, where she spends time performing, recording and modeling. Her face has graced the pages of Elle, SOMA and Jalouse.

Listen to "Self-Taught Leaner," the title cut to Trullie's new EP:
