Album Review

Reviewed 2001-09-05 
Slow, delicate indie rock. Female vocals, hushed dynamics; sounds like it was recorded in a church. Like a listenable dose of Low -- all tracks are short 1-3 minutes. I starred all the playable ones and triple starred my favs. - nari

1. (3:09) *lullaby in 3*
2. (1:37) very short amble; background fuzz and hopeful melody
3. (2:24) big drums, rock beat
4. (0:52) short, instrumental "glue" track
5. (2:44) new wave-y synths, simple theme
6. (2:09) * slow & easy beat, bright & carefree *
7. (1:22) ** crackle and eerie guitars; play with track 8 **
8. (1:12) ** precious. delicate little strums and whispered vocals **
9. (2:38) ** rock beat, airy light vocals & synth, pretty **
10. (3:52) *** simple and bleak; fades into posty brushes of winter !***
11. (2:53) more ubbeat, cheery
12. (3:51) *** low hum, moody vocals, loungey brushed drums ***
13. (1:40) ** very dark & moody, cello vibes & echoes; all instrumental; cool **
14. (2:35) * sooo cold and bitter, stripped down, "drained & whipped" vocals *
15. (0:42) short sample loop
16. (1:10) trancelike chant, positive
17. (2:18) little voice in a big echo chamber
18. (1:13) fast swinging acoustic ballad
19. (1:07) simple, marchlike
20. (1:43) this is unbearable to listen to
21. (2:17) slow foot-tappin rock beat
22. (2:07) a loping little western style track
23. (1:02) angsty acoustic; recorded underwater
