Album Review
DJ Away
Reviewed 2013-05-13 
Ambient folk
Naturalistic, simultaneously intimate and spacious wanderings from this solo project of Danielle Stech-Homsy. This is uniformly beautiful, mysterious stuff that seems to live on the edge of the woods inhabited by Grouper’s cloaked washes of sound. Tracks 4 and 6 feature koto master Shoko Hikage. Favorites: 3, 4, 5, 6, 8. No FCCs.

1. (2:49)—Mid-tempo. Grateful Dead cover. Playful but ominous.
2. (4:57)—Mid-tempo. Fuzzed out acoustic guitar. Cavernous bass tones. Lyrics come from a translation of Rilke.
3. *(4:40)—Very slow and dark. The plucked guitar notes sound like stones dropped into a bottomless lake. “Trees that you planted fall down.”
4. *(4:11)—Mid-tempo. Lovely koto and guitar interplay. Hypnotically repetitious.
5. *(3:44)—Medium-slow, sad. High-pitched, ominous, incantatory harmonies.
6. *(4:16)—Slow and melancholy. More koto. Background granular electronics.
7. (5:22)—Instrumental. Looped, wordless vocals. Soft, croaking percussion.
8. *(7:08)—Slow and foreboding. Several airy layers of background instrumentation, including flute harp and wordless vocals.
9. (4:08)—Mid-tempo. More politically pointed; talks about “powertrippers” and “[keeping] those lies away.”
