Product Description

BBC Review

This second album from Minneapolis chamber-folk outfit Dark Dark Dark has taken its time to cross the Atlantic, having emerged stateside to warm approval back in October 2010. But the wait has certainly been worth it. Picked up in the UK by Manchester-based indie Melodic, whose roster features the fine likes of Working for a Nuclear Free City and The Longcut, this is a collection that clicks with immediate clarity, the sort of album that you feel you’ve known forever on the very first listen.

Part of its instant appeal is the central presence of (mostly) lead vocalist Nona Invie, who attracts parallels at various points of proceedings with Shara Worden and Hope Sandoval. Those favouring the ethereal tones of the latter will find the quieter passages of Wild Go stand out; and there are plenty of tender turns which sink into deeply into the skin, leaving a lasting impression. But, equally, this is a band capable of turning quietness on its head, delivering bombast at the drop of a hat. So Heavy Heart switches from a loving nuzzle to a hefty nudge for a few seconds, an early warning shot over the parapet between artist and audience – yes, this lot can do big.

But largely the volume is increased only when the emotional weight at the core of these pieces demands it – when, to make the message clearer, the only option is to drown out all other distractions. So when Invie sings of dancing "for me", swept up in the moment, on the stunning Something for Myself, she steals every spotlight on the block. The woozy accordion of Celebrate conjures comparisons to British folk oldies, stirring thoughts of shanties sung at inns resting precariously atop foreboding cliffs. Robert, meanwhile, is the most delicate of these 10 tracks, a piano leading the way for Invie to follow with talk of a lost soul: "Tell me where you’re going…"

Frequently capable of rendering the listener struck dumb by its beguiling beauty, and played by musicians in perfect harmony with each other, Wild Go is easily among the frontrunners for album of the year (so far). It will find a place in the collections of those seduced by the indie-folk of Laura Marling just as easily as it will become a stereo mainstay in homes favouring the arrangements of Arcade Fire. But while its appeal is broad, there’s no doubting that Dark Dark Dark are an exquisite outfit exploring a soundworld that’s entirely theirs.

Subtle,musical,percussive,I enjoy every track of this romantic, reflective album.An ensemble that has found its own sound and does not feel the need to browbeat the listener,an excellent set of songs that grows on you the more you play.

Fantastic female vocalist who I suspect you would either love or hate. A mix of styles and wide range of different instruments used - banjo,accordion,cello,clarinet plus the usual stock components. Great selection of songs - nothing sounds samey and on first hearing you don't really know what to expect next. Hugely enjoyable. The e.p. Bright, Bright, Bright is also worth searching out. The title track is a particular favourite. I've heard this music described as 'chamber pop'. Don't really know what that is but if that 'genre' contains music as good as this give me more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply wonderful 8 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
There's a couple of stand out tracks, but with a little persistence i have grown to love the complete work. Thought it was a little expensive until i realised that the Bright, Bright, Bright EP was included. Thanks to Gideon Coe for exposing this gem.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Quality Control 23 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
The potential for this to be a great album was there - check out 'day dreaming', but sadly they have gone down the filler route for a number of tunes reducing its listening pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely folk-soul 20 Nov 2011
By Mario Villalobos - Published on Amazon.com
What can I say...Simply delicious. The music from songs like Something for Myself are so beautiful they make me cry. Overall this album is a delight, both the music and the production are excellent. A big step up from The Snow Magic album from 2008.

4.0 out of 5 stars quality music 8 Sep 2011
By Ryan Mouton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album that conveys a lot of strong genuine emotion. Most of the songs are very identifiably melancholy, and the music really complements the vocals, her having a a grand yet tender voice is almost piano-like in its own way and the two sound fantastic together. Generally enjoyed it, but my only complaint is that the album can feel a little dull towards the middle. Overall I would recommend to anyone who has an interest.
