As retro as its ethereal music videos and littered with wavy soft synths and echoing vocals, Do Easy is the accessible psych-pop produce of Canadians Tasseomancy. Tracks such as Missoula and Dead Can Dance & Neil Young are bound to send listeners on a serene and snug trance into the abyss.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 November 2016
Who Is the new Kate Bush then?
There are plenty of choices but Former Austra types Tasseomancy should not be ignored as a possible replacement. The vocals is quite remarkably similar with ll the same vocal inflections, the sweeping and swooping, the sudden drop at the end of a sentence and the slight difficulty in pronouncing the letter ‘r’. The music isn’t quite as wild and wacky as Kate’s - it uses the same Fairlight synths but doesn’t have the same dramatic sweep and octave leaping experimentation. A lot of the production harks back to the likes of Fleetwood Mac ‘Tango In the Night’ and Enya’s mid ‘80s records - all soft synths and vaguely new age associations.
The album is pretty pleasant on the ear throughout, a drifty relaxing listen but really it’s too much like Kate Bush to really her able to take it seriously. Tracks like ‘Missoula’ are lovely and exotic slaps of harmonic strangeness but almost comedically like Kate Bush. Still if you like late period Kate and can’t get enough of it then this is going to be right up your street.
