Customer reviews

4.5 out of 5 stars

on 15 December 2017
This is by far her best album, you can trace the genesis from the first album - although she could have gone into some fairly bland territory. I bought the next 'Oh my girl" which was in the same vein and then...

Only bought this on catching up to see what she'd done since and was intrigued by the reviews. Other reviewers have mentioned Quicksilver Messenger Service (let's talk 1968/69 here!) and it is these snaking guitars that is striking on this album. Hopefully, there will be more, but I could also just as wish for some stripped down sound, to get her vocals some space.

It's now almost 2018, and this was released in 2011 - I hope there'd be more... there better should be! If you're looking for something in sort of the same vein (but no electric guitars, but dark husky type music - a genre of its own?!) check out Smoke Fairies.

Unless my memory fails me- Hushed By Devotion at 5mins + breaks into Quicksilvers abovementioned Cipollina/Duncan duo....No bad thing folks my age would say!

Jesse Sykes & her mates in The Sweet Hereafter have created a beautiful hybrid in their Pacific Northwest greenhouse studio. Fans of "Oh My Girl" - one of my all-time favorite discs - will not be disappointed. The dusky jewel that is Sykes' voice still glitters through the arrangements, although now its setting has been expanded to include much more from her band. Echoes of "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" Neil Young, have been crossed with Sunn O))), and lotsa good ol' country and beguiling harmonies to produce a magical recording that just gets better with each listen. It perfectly reflects the environment in which it was created - lush, watery, shadow-dappled, deeply affecting.
