Album Review
Reviewed 2010-06-07
Very mild pop for fans of Feist, Cat Power. At times even sounds like Tori Amos. Warning: all songs end with more or less 6s of silence. Sound is very spare, just guitars and vocals with the occasional synth or keyboard. FCC clean. Try 1,5
*1.Mid-tempo a cappella whispers with a faint bass line.
2.Mid-tempo song with echoey vocals, guitars and what sounds like a moog.
3.Down tempo. Stronger vocals, slide guitars and soft percussion- Americana sound
4.Down tempo. Falsetto/slurred vocals, faint synth in background and tambourines.
*5.Mid-tempo. Interesting guitar riff opens the song, then distorted, confused keyboards come in- pretty cool!
6.Down tempo.Vocals open the song, then French horn and drums come in. I think the intention w/the horn was whimsical, but it sounds out of place with guitars.
7.Down tempo. Heartbreaking song about loneliness. Just vocals and arpeggiated chords on guitar.
8.Mid-tempo. Voice sounds just like Tori Amos, but the song is actually kind of jolly- quick guitar strumming and a lot of backing vocals at end.
9.Down tempo. Very gentle sound. Acoustic guitar and vocals, then a keyboard solo
