Menacing Chamber Blues
So what kind of music is this? Here’s a stab: menacing chamber blues. Wha? This is new territory we’re dealing with here, so somebody better give it a try. It’s kind of folky, it’s more often than not orchestral, the vocals are grand in scale, the lyrics so intimate. In fact, there are few occasions where I’d describe male vocals as breathtaking, but then here it is; the last time I was so taken with a voice it would have been Jeremy Enigk from Sunny Day Real Estate, to whom these throaty vocals are an easy comparison. It goes a lot further than that, thoughthis is breathtaking beyond compare, and difficult to separate It’s all a BIG voice, an urgency, a secret that they’re aching to get out.
Every single song hereevery single songis a new step toward something hazy and beautiful. The overall effect is stunning, and I am having a severe emotional reaction to this. I truly believe this: A new door in music has just been opened, and I can’t hear anything the same way again.
