Product Description

Product Description

Originally released in 2008, Mariee Sioux's Faces in the Rocks immediately elevated the songwriter to the vanguard of a burgeoning California folk revival alongside Joanna Newsom, Devendra Bahnart, Vetiver, and Alela Diane. Although Mariee had already made a name for herself as a touring member of Brightblack Morning Light, it was not until the release of Faces in the Rocks that Mariee's agile fingerpicking and impressionistic songwriting made her one of the movement's leading figures. Sadly, the label that originally released Faces in the Rocks disbanded just as the album's momentum was secure. The first pressing of the CD sold out, there was no vinyl pressed whatsoever, and the master recordings were lost in the shuffle of legal wrangling. Years passed. Mariee released an EP with Bonnie Prince Billy and a sophomore solo LP, Gift for the End. She toured Europe and the U.S. extensively, and her fans kept asking for Faces in the Rocks. With their support, Mariee successfully mounted a kickstarter campaign to buy back the rights to her recording...and the rest is history. Now, with the help of Whale Watch Records and Almost Musique, Mariee Sioux's groundbreaking debut will see the light of day once more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great New Talent. 20 Nov 2007
By William J. Walker VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I discovered this album quite by chance and what a stunning find it has turned out to be. I hesitate at the use the phrase 'album of the year' but I think it is the strongest and most original album by a female artist in 2007.

The music on this album is certainly very different to the standard singer-songwriter fare. The pieces are quite long(eight songs on a fifty minute album, the shortest is five minutes long)and intricate musically and lyrically. The songs are very rich in imagery and gorgeously melodic.
Despite their length the songs never drag, holding the attention throughout and allowing you to drift off into the places conjured by her words.

The guitar playing has an easy fluidity that brings to mind Nick Drake. However the artist she reminds me of the most is Joanna Newsom and the comparisons are unavoidable(no harp though)but where as "Ys" has a certain fantastical air to it this album is rooted in nature and has a rather earthy solidity. The music centers on the rhythm of the guitar and her beautiful voice and is supported by a variety of acoustic instruments.

This is a fantastic album by a major new artist. Get it NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Melody and Voice 10 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to Faces in the Rocks by the beautiful Mariee Sioux (real name Marie Sobonya), is like growing eagle wings and flying high above misty mountains and vast forests in a time before man conquered the wilderness. Her voice and her finger picking guitar style reminds one of the female folk artists of the 60s, like Joan Baez and Buffy Sainte Marie, but I consider Mariee Sioux a far better singer than both of these icons. Her songs are deeply spiritual and hauntingly beautiful, carried by a remarkable and clean voice which soars and dives through the weaving melodies. One cannot help falling in love with Mariee Sioux on Faces in the Rocks. Her voice and her melodies go straight to the heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars breathtakingly beautiful 13 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
I think I own between some 1500 and 2000 cd's at home.
So far I never send a review for a cd.
But for this cd I must admit that this is breathtakingly beautiful. This girl is really so talented !!!!
And these songs really overwhelm you.
So I hope this girl really gets the recognition she certainly deserves.
My absolute favourite is number 7 "Bundles"
So I only have 1 advice : buy this cd !!!!!!
