Reviewed 2007-07-29
Female chorus from the wilds with folk tinged drone. Voices are used more as pure instruments...few if no words. Vaguely reminiscent of Lau Nau. FCC clean. Picks: 5,8,10,12

1-0:17) Falling sigh.
2-3:25) Harmonium drone. Sighing/chants. Dies to strummed guitar with alto fem. vox chords.
*3-2:48) Low wind chimes. Birdlike slide whistles and panflutes, low pitched vox drone. Fadeout.
4-1:27) Tribal percussion and banjo. Repetitive beating. Ends at -:05.
*5-3:17) Darker feel. Cello and vox drone. A little disturbed.
6-1:47) Shimmery new agey with subtle fluctuation.
7-4:37) Banjo-y repetitive motif with fem. vox. sighs. Nature-y.
*8-2:21) Repetitive chorus round.
9-3:48) Repetitive mandolin strum with fem. vox. choral wails. A bit religious almost. Slows towards end + fadeout.
*10-3:21) Just singing. Words. Like a fragile lullaby. Then folky guitar strums hypnotically to end.
11-4:10) Minor motif on guitar almost like a hip hop sample. Soft beating on a tribal drum and muted wails. Dies towards end.
12-2:06) Music boxes. Slide whistles. Fem chorus.
13-2:24) Warm, fuzzy distorted elec. guitar strums announce the chorus.
