Boomkat Product Review:
Her fifth album as a solo artist, A Ways Away finds Tara Jane O'Neil embellishing the language of hushed acoustic introspection plotted out on prior albums with a more elaborately layered sound, showcased on the wonderful 'In Tall Grass', which features vocal harmonisation with Jana Hunter, set to a backdrop of droning strings and gentle acoustics. O'Neil's production sounds better than ever here, creating a charged atmosphere on the likes of 'Howl', with its spindly violins and tremulous, vulnerable singing, whilst opting for more stylised leftfield techniques on something like 'Biwa' whose muffled quasi-medieval harmonies bring to mind some of Grouper's less evasive material. These sort of atmospherically-charged moments come in various guises, with 'Beast, Go Along' proving to be a memorable, wintry piece of doom-folk, while darkly beautiful instrumentals 'The Drowning Electric' and 'Pearl Into Sand' help to inform this album's rich and evocative palette. Highly recommended.
