Boomkat Product Review:
What do you do when you have a voice as exquisite as that of Lisa Cerbone? Show it off, that's what. Sticking the vocals high in the mix, Cerbone's first album in over six years wisely lets her voice do the talking with accompaniment that, whilst sparse and intimate, is never cold, weaving an intricate tapestry of panegyrical acoustic melodies that gently snags your ear without distracting from the vocals. Cerbone deals in gently undulating folk inflected acoustica which instils a sense of gentle optimism into often outwardly melancholic songs. Opening with 'Swallowing Stones', an exquisite acoustic paneon to the passing of time, Cerbone allows the Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters) produced music to slowly flourish as quietly epic peaks are gracefully ascended with a restraint that is often lacking in such singer/songwriter led recordings. Elsewhere, 'How You Shine' takes a very real sense of menace and distils it into a gently undulating folk song whilst 'Sweep Your Hair From Your Eyes' manages to incorporate early-90's, transatlantic power-rock stylings into the kind of thing big labels would love to get their hands on for the likes of Natalie Imbruglia. However, this is in no way to damn with feint praise as Cerbone is one of those rare talents that can be intimate and uncompromising yet still make eminently listenable music that is capable of appealing to a wide audience. Anything but ordinary.
