Grace Cooper of the Sandwitches has a new release from her side-project-- great spooky bedroom-folk, yelpy and sweet and spare. Everything is slow, moody, atmospheric, otherworldly. Highly-recommended (fcc on 2).|
RIYL: The Sandwitches, Grass Widow, Fiona Apple (note that the Sandwitches intersect with Sonny Smith, Thee Oh Sees, and other sf faves)
1. (4:51) Quiet open, takes a good ten seconds to be heard, very frail and broken, the most meandering track, spooky and sinuous.
2. (3:26) ***** (FCC: "bullshit") Nice, echoey "shaking a baby...", some cool reverby Morricone-esque guitar stabs join in.
3. (2:27) ***** Sweet, trotting guitar. Sweet humming harmony... just aching, angelic... beautiful.
4. (4:19) **** Quiet piano opening, ... "isn't a vision..." then a springy, crazy dead-stringy guitar solo.
5. (2:28) ** instrumental, staticky radio, with noodly piano.
6. (4:03) **** Sweet echoey piano and a wonderful melody "ah yah yah yah"; soft and beautiful, so soft.
7. (2:48) *** More hypnotic guitar and delicate vox. Beautiful. "so afraid of the change..."
8. (2:59) ** multi-tracked vocals, dissonant piano plunking.
9. (3:26) ***** Brighter, sunny guitar and twangy upbeat melody, still shambly and kinda spooky. Yowly and wonderful textures of noise.
10. (3:38) ** Tape hiss; guitar in the muck, her voice breaks through, frail and clear, very pretty. Ends with kinda disconcerting "LOVE YA, SUG!"- very loud.
