Mazzy Star, Elysian Fields—Mazzy Star without the jangling or electronic leanings. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Hope Sandoval is the former lead singer of Mazzy Star. Ó Cíosóig was formerly with My Bloody Valentine.
Recommended first album:
not bad, judging by 1.5 listens. as languid as mazzy star, but more liquid, if that makes any sense, and less country-like. some burbly keyboards here and there give this a different tone as well. bert jansch guests on one track. until hearing this, i never really realized that hope can give jennifer charles of elysian fields a run for her money in the sultry department.

Hope Sandoval and Ó Cíosóig
Amazing solo debut! What has amazed me even more are all the rave reviews she has got in norwegian media. If her forthcoming releases are all half this good then I'm really gonna be happy. (firstname.lastname@example.org .no)

Hope Sandoval & Colm Ó Cíosóig
Similar overall to Bavarian Fruit Bread, but somewhat darker and maybe a touch edgier. (JoAnn Whetsell)
