- The Driver by Felicia Atkinson
Felicia Atkinson is a lucky lady. Not only has she got someone to love but the boy in question also has a valid drivers licence and was more than happy to drive Ms. Atkinson around the US for four months back in the summer of 2010. 'The Driver' is inspired by said journey, in particular the scenic stretch from Portland to San Francisco known as Route 101. Atkinson's music is incredibly subtle in approach and is driven by her enthusiasm for improvisation and chance, be it in her music or art in general. Recorded in her attic bedroom in her home town of Brussels, I get the impression that 'The Driver' is more a reflection on that period of time as opposed to a direct interpretation of her travels. It seems incredibly sombre in tone which suggests a sadness in these events passing and also a desire for further travel adventures with loved ones. Atkinson primarily improvises with guitar and effects creating ambient swirls and abstract melodic phrases. It's very peaceful and understated and sorta reminds me of David Grubbs in mega mellow mode. Very much in keeping with the Hibernate philosophy.
