Despite The Guardian now telling us who tells us what music to listen to (London twats basically), we go on our merry way ignoring the hype of the overrated bullshit that clogs up the magazines at the mercy of their advertisers and sales figures. Not to blow our own trumpet or anything but bloody HMV aren't going to stock the new Black Church CD and the bleeding IPC magazines aren't going to write about it, they are too busy with Adele and Lady Gaga but music made independently like this one and hundreds of other titles released this week still deserve a platform of some kind. This is a ridiculously limited re-press of a title released on tape in the US only. Its early '80's sounding minimilist slightly gothy 4AD pop with nods towards Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, Dead Can Dance. Her voice is lovely, I'm finding the synthy instrumentation a little Jean Michelle Jarre at times but loving the Cocteau Twins style bass. Its not that far removed from Zola Jesus and the like. Its nice to hear a lovingly strummed guitar coming into play on later track, shifting the mood entirely. At other times they sound like amazing New York drifters Hugo Largo and the original Weekend (Alison Statton). A lovely listen.
