Artist: Eleanor Murray
Album: For Cedar
Genre: Singer-Songwriter/Folk Sounds Like: Kim Richey, Laura Veirs, Kathleen Edwards
Personal Picks: Tracks 5, 9, 10, General: Sleepy mood harmonies that dream with “one-eye open”. Basically Murray delivers melancholic folk music that pursues an introspective and minimalist style—giving off a vibe that is both soft spoken and revealing. Her graceful combination of traditional acoustic guitar picking and emotionally twitching vocals makes this a good soundtrack for heartbreaks, campfire moments and sunless days.

Track Descriptions (NO FCC’s detected): 1. Today (3:56) Has a country folk/bluegrass feel like an old western-lullaby with ethereal vocals. 2. Julie (3.53) Repetitive chord progressions that alternate between picking and strumming—putting the listener into a slow tempo-ed trance 3. Walk Home (4:12) Slower than the previous number, although the cello provides something new 4. Joseph’s Song (4:20) The base line sets the rhythm to a medium paced progression that builds and retreats, cello carries the melody over simple guitar strumming 5. River (4:02) Has an upbeat “indie-folk” feel with Fiest-like vocals and a fun country-bounce 6. Electric Sky (5:16) Trembling articulations of the voice try to convey emotion—another slooww track. 7. The Last Meal (5:29) A more bitter and daring tone with a flare of Damien Rice, gets into a groove and sticks with it 8. All the World in Bloom (4:11) Seems depressing with lots of cello and monotonous minor chord picking, sparse vocals 9. Healing (7:07) Loudest song, some nice and light percussion, contemplative but engaging, a low repeated guitar riff throughout until half way then a marching band drumming style enters and replaces the rhythmic blah of monotonous guitar picking, vocals return with a sound that is more “folk-rock”, sets a perfect stage for a dramaturgy entitled “the light at the end of a post-breakup tunnel” 10. A Midwest Winter (4:26) Very pretty light finger picking with delicate vocals that reflect some sort of nostalgia on life, love, and nature, again--slow paced
