Album Review
Reviewed 2005-10-09
Beautiful dreamy pop from a member of Azure Ray. Complete with lots of strings and 4ADish touches like disembodied backing vocals and odd percussion. Orenda Fink sings songs influenced by spirituality and her travels in Haiti, Cambodia, and India. She has a wonderful voice that is spooky and spacey and is backed by some pretty phenomenal musicians included Scott Amendola on drums. Songs vary from chamber-pop to lean rock to weird experiments. Excellent! This album is pretty new agey in orientation and might also work well in that context. FCC clean. Stand-out tracks: 1, 2!, 3, 9

==> 1. slower, lovely, suicide song
==> 2. piano driven, haunting, strings
==> 3. intense lean rock, really bassy
4. unadorned singing in unnerving pizzicato string groove, very tense
5. very This Mortal Coil, tense groove, disembodied backing chorus
6. more conventional pop, about a comatose girl
7. starts spare with tribal drums, becomes more full with weird noises, Nick Cavey
8. stomping rock, '80's ish, keyboards, Patterson Hood of DBT sings background vocals
==> 9. spooky, unnerving, spacious with layered vocals
10. tribal drumming, call-and-response voodoo number
