Album Review

Reviewed 2007-02-11
LOCAL! Beautiful, soft and sweet ballads and storytelling songs. Female vocals with multiple male backups. Creative song structures and instrumentation. Great use of various instruments including kazoos and bells. Songs mainly focus on Daniela’s lulling, velvety voice; supported by her distant and crooning guitar, soft male backup vocals, and multiple faint percussion and sounds made different instruments and objects. Lyrics are very poetic, some childlike and playful. I hate to compare, but if you like Cat Power, Mirah, Joanna Newsom, Johanna Kunin, then you’ll like Snowblink!

1 – lovely vocals! very soft sounds with strong voice; calm ending with backups
2 – fun & playful with kazoos and other sounds, childlike lyrics; one of my favs
3 – starts/ends w/whistling, great mixture of male/fem vocals; distant & has a sense of longing for something; end has nice mixture of guitar, violin & harp(?)
4 – simple song with vocals and harp(?); very faint and sweet
5 – another simple song, very soft and floating; mostly vocals and accordion, begins and ends with wind sounds
6 – pretty & somber sound w/mixture of piano, guitar and lulling female vocals
7 – a little more western/folk sounding w/violins, twangy guitar and steel guitar
8 – playful and creative with vocals; light and floating, song ends with silly kazoo and other toy instrument sounds
9 – another song with twangy/folk elements; faint steel guitar with rhythmic guitar that fades in and out; lovely, sexy female vocals playing off of each other
10 – starts out very soft with harp or acoustic guitar I cant tell; I think there’s also a xylophone? Really soft and sparse, mainly instrumental; fades out in the middle and transitions into a different sound with added male vocals, a little more upbeat with a tambourine (ends around 5:30min)
11 – tappy and upbeat, playful with percussion, tambourines and vocals; midway change with accordion and lilting vocals
