8/10 Brett Staff review, 13 April 2011
I haven't a great idea of what this lady is singing about because I can't hear very much out of one of my ears just now.. Something to bear in mind for this week's other reviews there. Through the muffle I can pretty much tell she does an intimate, lo-fi take on acoustic guitar-based baroque folkiness and executes it very well. The recording style, strongly evoking the image of a lone outsider songwriter who probably never leaves their bedroom, can't help but recall Jandek to me but her songs are far more traditional than that, having just a little something of the poeticism of Leonard Cohen and the sighing nature of Hope Sandoval, albeit delivered in a far more overtly impassioned manner than either.. Perhaps to some degree indebted to the more intense and mournful end of 50s and 60s vocal pop? Phil reckons Marissa Nadler and Josephine Foster are good markers too, to give you a further idea. She's clearly a big talent.
