Album Review

Reviewed 2013-02-20 
Slowcore dream-pop release from Kranky alum/Toledo, OH native Jessica Bailiff. Dreamy, down-tempo, slow in places, just as you might expect. Guitar leads most tracks, though there are drums and piano/synths in there too. Dreamy female vox. RIYL: Rivulets, Low

*1 (3:29) Whirring, slow, patchwork of dreams. Deep, breathy vocals while instruments echo all around
*2 (3:22) Loud, fuzzy, shoegazey, MBV worship
3 (5:15) Slow, plodding along, deep vox for the most part before religious chanting/tambourine takes over
4 (3:33) Vampiric keys, lush vox in the forefront, echoed harmonies
5 (3:34) Down-tempo, low synth tones, melancholic vocals
6 (4:31) NES Castlevania soundtracks played on modern instruments, creepy high-pitched vox
7 (4:54) Too schlocky for me, piano, “It’s quite alright... if we say goodnight� etc.
8 (5:32) Rocky, strummed guitars, pounding drums, straightforward
**9 (5:57) Oh fuck yeah here we go, dreamy/shoegazy meets the poppiest of slowcore; daytime drone show DJs and Kranky aficionados will agree this track is great. Low fans circa mid-90s would probably have expected the band to sound like this
