For instance, i was anticipating amidst the 10 track original cd a flawed, weaker track. Nope, failed. The second cd has a few more distant pieces that don't immediately snap the synapse. However, these in time will not be mere filler in my brain-library, but will be a coherent part of her oeuvre.
A strong, brittle, fragile bursting voice married with understated shades of dark and piercing soprano light. Enthusiasm demands that effusive comment take pride of place over detached critique. Pieces like 'Lifeline', 'One', 'Worship', 'These Days', and of course 'Do you Remember', have caused my hi-fi to tremble with a strange pleasant anxiety. The other tracks merely made we want to shatter.
If you search for Ane Brun in the online allmusic you get the following description:
With her lilting vocals, theatrical arrangements, and delicate indie folk craft, Norwegian singer/songwriter Ane Brun (pronounced Ah-na Broon) remained a regional secret until 2003, when she made her European debut with the release of Spending Time with Morgan. Released on the DetErMine label, a company that Brun co-founded the previous year with the Tiny's Ellekari Larsson, Spending Time with Morgan won local praise for its cinematic sound and was later championed at the Swedish Independent Music Awards.
It is true that she sings like a cabaret singer and her voice is peculiar in a way you can certainly not mistake her for other singer. She owns her record label and she is widely known in Scandinavia, and as time goes by, in most of Europe.
Her last record, It All Stars With One is a masterpiece, where vocals match perfectly the score of the songs, this way, the songs which opens the album These Days is somehow magic. The strings and her voice blended make the song not easy listening, which is a label most times underrated in music criticism, but perfect. The record is full of contrasts, sometimes close to the her previous records, sometimes close to a new tune, like the well chosen single Do you remember? where the contrast between lyrics and sound make the song obscure and at the same time, close to what the ideal pop song must be.
The epic One , where you can find the line which names the album, it's amazing and puzzling. The music remembers the ones you can find in the single, but at the same time, the lyrics and music evolve in a way you don't certainly know if the song is about love or life. Or both.Read more ›
is a singularly affecting creation; a work of darkness and melancholy shot
through here and there with iridescent shafts of sunlight and moonbeams.
Ms Brun's voice is a fragile but beautifully articulated instrument with a
tremulous upper-register and the capacity to communicate complex emotion.
There are ten songs in the set, sensitively produced by Tobias Froberg.
The mood of the project is largely sedentary; the kind of music to lull
you into a state of reflective somnolence. Even when the tempo becomes a
tad more racy (as it does with the African-tinged percussion of 'Do You
Remember') the dreamlike spell is sustained. 'Worship', a duet with Jose
Gonzalez, is an especially magical example of her craft; the gently plodding
bluesy melody decorated with a luminous and deftly scored string arrangement.
'Lifeline', too, spins a silver thread within the delicate crystalline framework
of the tentative instrumental accompaniment; Ms Brun's vocal performance
an almost ghostly presence, lost and alone in a terrain without landmarks.
'The Light From One' advances slowly like a snail crossing the surface of
a dew spotted leaf; desolate but nonetheless curiously beguiling and final
track 'Undertow' wrings an extraordinary range of tonal colours from it's
sublime central theme; rising and falling like a great rolling ocean wave.
It is one of the very finest songs I have heard this year. A stunning finale.
'It All Starts With One' deserves a far wider audience than I fear it will find.
The album itself is incredible with her voice amazing me at the range that she is able to deliver. I particularly like "what's happening with you and him", but all of the tracks are extremely enjoyable as are the lyrics, which leave you very much with a vignette to ponder the story behind them.
I still listen mainly to Radio 4, but part of me thinks that perhaps I should listen to Radio 2 more, particularly when I am returning home after a long day..........
