Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-01-03
Airy, folksy, psych pop with fantastic female vocals. Every song seems to be about the complexity of devoted love/relations. All of which are sung with a very sincere, heartfelt voice. In line with Damon & Naomi, the prettier side of Bongwater and Cat Power. Very enticing stuff.

(((((1))))) Cascading organ, guitar slides & slight fuzz with a very commanding voice.
(((2))) The “tolerable side of 70’s lite rock” side ‘ala the Carpenters. Must be the vocal harmonies, works better on the 2nd go ‘round.
(((3))) Slow tempo, pretty good vocals (tho’ it could do with a few dozen less “oh-o-oh”s) and organ sound. Sounds like 2 different songs.
(((((4))))) Near perfect melancholic pop.
((((5)))) Slow, strummy, drifting, airy vocals
(((((((6))))))) Whoa! Gorgeous, shimmery pop bliss!
(((((7))))) Twangy, lots of organ and vocals that instantly grab you.
(((((8))))) Very mellow and gorgeous cover of the equally wonderful Daniel Johnston original.
(((((9))))) Floaty, sultry and very compelling.
((((10))))) Interesting mix of girl group ballary and a little bit of 60’s psych-pop. Nice.
((((11)))) Slinky, breathy, twangy and heavy on the tambourine (!?)
