Boomkat Product Review:
**Debut album of operatic folk by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter - formerly of The Sterling Sisters - who has recently worked with Jack White. RIYL Diamanda Galas, Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard** "Crashing crescendos of guitar, percussively strummed autoharp and an array of both acoustic and electronic sculptures by Scout Paré-Phillips with accompaniment by Scout’s beloved musical collaborator, Emil Bognar-Nasdor (Dawn of Humans, Røsenkopf), populate her LP. Scout’s torch songs of pure, raw emotional outpouring compliment the rich timbre of her trained voice, which breathes a new life into the contemporary idea of a “folk singer”. Her narrative about two lovers being torn apart and brought back together over many years has formed a new genre within acoustic music’s storytelling tradition."
