- Prayer For The Unborn by Chelsea Wolfe
Chelsea Wolfe is a dark, bleak lady. She produces howling, visceral music which relies on the goth/foghorn of her voice which quavers and quivers around the dingy, grimy rock of the music it competes with. What she has done here is release a five track record of Rudimentary Peni covers - not the kind of career move that will allow her to move with the Grimes and the Zola Jesuses but once which produces some incredibly intense music.
A highlight is ‘Echo’ which has the dark angular chords of the darkest of Dunedin, New Zealand post punk. At other times she comes across as PJ Harvey’s even more depressed younger sister, creating atmospheric dirges of immense power -thundering drums, screaming vocal extravagances and heavily effected guitars. At its most gentle as on ‘Black on Gold’ its still the perfect soundtrack to slash your wrists to. The haunting operatic darkness of Diamanda Galas is hinted at though there is something early ‘80s LA goth about the whole thing. It’s a very short album, in fact I would label it a single but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in intensity.
