Album Review
Hannah Mae
Reviewed 2002-10-17
Mostly indie rock of the swirly drifty variety, tending towards downtempo when the beats get louder - piles of reverb, piles of phaser, guitars everywhere. I have a few favorites but there isn't a bad track in the lot. Yay Rocket Girl!

Disc 1
1. goofy vocals, exuberant drumming and bassline
2. wavery, watery guitar drift w/female vocals - the only lyric I catch is "iiiiiice… is meeelting…" which is an apt description
3. starts slow and quiet - segue-er beware! Nice delayed guitar and keyboards all layered and atmospheric. A pleasantly gritty male voice w/a British accent holds forth sotto voce on many lists of things.
4. thick dubby bass n drone n harmony vox - apt title
5. echoey slidey guitar, a bit like Neil Young's Dead Man sdtk
6. whooshes, sweet sustained organ, guitar chime - acquires a dance beat midway through - dig that phaser pedal!
7. appealing rumble and echo and fuzz
8. mealymouthed pop w/My Bloody Valentine tendencies
9. majestic pop
10. little bass melody that hums in your ears - pretty song about a breakup
11. spare and melancholy, with spates of busy drumming
12. bouncing swirl, Elephant 6-style
13. downtempo strum and whoosh
14. more soaring swirly psych-pop, pretty bassline
15. sweet strummy pop song - hidden track - layered noises and nonsense vocals

Disc 2
1. pretty fingerpicking, gets big and, uh, post-rocky? ends abruptly
2. bleeps and bloops, vaguely 80's-pop melody
3. muddy swirls, super bassy - sorta MBV
4. slow bass pattern, tinkles and plinks
5. slow washes, fingerpicking, clear vocals
6. spacy guitar and brushed drums
7. big-drums powerpop
8. repetitive swirly gamelan-like percussion
9. mournful, with piano and guitar and male vox
10. backmasked drums and drone, with traces of shimmery vox
11. somewhere between indie rock and downtempo - beats and funny vocals
12. downtempo with laid-back repetitive drum and guitar loops
13. record-static and piano loop and murmuring spoken vocals - false ending and then sequenced drums kick in - and then the track ends like 10 sec. early
14. scrap of sweet drift and piano underlaid with thunderous airplane roar, a bit like Sigur Rós
15. bass melody, phased drones, snare-heavy drums - hidden track at like 4 min. remaining - backmasked drums, bass thump, murmured vox and chimes
