6/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 July 2011

This is better. 21(yikes!)-year-old Haley Fohr with her third album of dark folk. Apparently this is a move onwards and upwards from the other two which I have yet to hear. She has a distinctive full blooded voice that recalls Nico but when matched with the simple guitar instrumentation she comes on like an early/mid period Catpower before she started courting fame and covering Frank Sinatra. It's bleak but beautifully so, simple guitar strums provide a nest for the yearning voice but by track three she has started experimenting with electronics eerily redolent to Japan's 'Ghosts'. Elsewhere there is simple guitar picking, strange and cinematic, not that far away from Earth's sludgy compositions. I'm also reminded of dark American gothy singers like Carla Bozulich, especially on the second half of the record which becomes nastier and more discordant. The final blues sludge of 'I'm on Fire' is particularly disarming, coming across like Low's Canada performed by someone at the end of their tether.
