We've got some more of those outrageously limited CDs in from the ever-productive Reverb Worship this week, and this one I've got here is an album of experimental minimal pop by New York songstress Heidi Harris. It's very much a song-based record but with a bit of an experimental lo-fi approach. Very well recorded, though, no muddy tones or layers of hiss, but it's got an intimate bedroom recording feel to it. I'm instantly reminded of Julia Holter by the ghostly layering of vocals and brittle, minimal accompaniment, largely on piano but also on guitar, glockenspiel, clarinet and various other instruments over the course of the record. Tori Amos and Joanna Newsom at their more understated are certainly valid reference points in the more song-based parts, but then there are other segments with woodwind and tinkles and barely-there weirdness that offers a slightly jarring and sinister edge to proceedings without heading into uncomfortable listening territory. It's got that Ela Orleansy hesitant wistfulness to it but with a cleaner and less layered aesthetic. Just unhurried loveliness, basically. It's totally intimate and otherworldly and it's really won me over. Gorgeous packaging too. Wouldn't surprise me if we hear a lot more from this lady in the future. Get 'em while they're here.
