Comments:

This is a singular album and reminds me a little of a mix of Bonfire Madigan and Rebecca Moore. It's hard to describe. While it's not exactly un-melodic, the strong structures are on the verge of experimental. Dark and dramatic, her vocals suit the mood, playing off the cello. Very interesting, and ectophiles will find much to enjoy here. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
