Don't Talk In Your Sleep
Picks: 1,8,2,3,6,9 *** FCCs: 9 ***
**1. Whoah! Way to open an album! Dark americana ambience, with an addition of stoner like heaviness. I love the swagger in her voice and the guitars...
*2. Another stone solid heavy tune. Good segue from first track.
*3. Short, fast, raw. Sonic Youth when they are rocking out.
4. Here's the sugary pop undertone... Doesn't fail to get weird soon enough (what else would it do with a title like "psychosomatic"?)
5. Weird percussive sound gives a sort of industrial feel to this one, but in a semi-pop way (is this even possible?). Nice one.
*6. Ominous, dark, morose. Messed up gurgling background noise (wizard wind?) Song about the dangers of gambling. Very good!
7. Noisy instrumental noodling, gets louder towards the end
**8. Fast, frantic, urgent... Raw power, sounds so much like Kim Gordon fronted Sonic Youth. Lyrics critical of the hippies.
*9. FCC shit (imperceptible). Sounds like a psyche ballad. Really nice and smooth.
10. Long and dark instrumental intro, then the vocals join in... Sounds like funeral music. Midway through piano enters and song turns into a bright little ballad (wow her voice is beautiful)... again ends in a morose tone
