Creature Breath is the alter-ego of Shawn Marie Westendorf, who has eight songs of dreamily-paced ethereal neofolk on this super-limited new CD for Reverb Worship. She accompanies her sparse, haunting laments with guitar, glockenspiel and thumb piano, and the talented Heidi Harris, who produced the CD, pitches in with theremin, cello, clarinet, piano and backing vocals.
Harris’s footprint is certainly here in the sultry, bare-bones arrangements, but Westendorf’s soulful folky songwriting seems to have more of a focused and narrative pop-informed style rather than the plaintive near-ambient weirdscapes Harris conjures in her own music. It’s beautiful stuff, all gently strummed guitars and subtle atmospherics shrouding intimate slightly Joni Mitchell-esque vocals, it’s actually reminding me a little of Odessa Chen and Laura Gibson too. Quiet, soulful, and cannily arranged, this is gorgeous late-night weirdfolk.
