5.0 out of 5 stars An original to savour, 4 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tragedy: 2013 Bonus Edition (Audio CD)
This girl has a vision; she is a musician in a real innovative sense. Original, individual and quirky - think Laurie Anderson, Joanna Newsom, or further back even Bjork or Robert Wyatt. Enchanting, and blissful at times - think Cocteau Twins, LaBradford, Joanna Newsom again, and dream pop generally. Of course it sounds like none of these specifically, but there's ambience, found sounds, fragile vocals, vocoders, textures, atmospherics, melody - it's all a bit woozy and 'other' and almost like God Speed You Black Emperor here and there. Some samples initially seem sudden - just dropped in and clunky but forget it was done in a bedroom using free Audacity software (with a few uppish sound levels) and just listen. There is nothing market driven here, no demographic is being targeted. This record makes its own rules. Just trying to find something to compare it with emphasises its uniqueness.
I've not heard follow ups Ekstasis or Loud City Song - is it possible to have too much of a good thing?
To clarify the two available CD issues (at different prices), the Night School / Leaving Records CD Tragedy (2012) and Domino CD (Tragedy: 2013 Bonus Edition) appear to be the same, one using the front and the other the back cover as publicity. I ordered the 2013 Bonus Edition which apart from a Domino label on the clear wrap had a 2012 Night School / Leaving Records cover. It has 6 tracks - the Introduction and Interlude are simply embedded in the following track rather than separate as listed. The CD text title: 'Tragedy: Assets' adds to the confusion. So why the bonus?
