Imagine lying in a hammock on a spring afternoon, gently swinging in the breeze. That's the feeling Tori Amos evokes on "Sleeps With Butterflies," the preview to her upcoming album "The Beekeeper." The direction she takes is a natural continuation from her last set, "Scarlet's Walk." The music has the same pleasant lilt as "A Sorta Fairytale" (the lead single from "Scarlet") but is more delicate. The piano smoothly blends in with a light mix of bass, guitar and percussion, letting the song float by like a cloud. Lyrically, Amos uses a direct approach (for her, anyway). She sings of her willingness to let a lover be as distant as he wants: "Or if you need some time/I don't mind/I don't hold on/To the tail of your kite." Given the words "This girl only sleeps with butterflies," it sounds as though that's the man she prefers. This is a good antidote to winter's blues.?CLT
