Boomkat Product Review:
Jana Horn's second solo album is just as skeletal and beautiful as its predecessor, muddling American folk with sunny, tropical pop.
Horn describes her sophomore effort as the result of a failed poem she wrote while attending a class on esoteric literature. Surrounded by words, she was reading constantly - sometimes five-hundred pages a week - she had no musical accompaniment as her record player was broken, her car stereo had given up and her laptop's speakers were shot. So songs rattled around her head until Horn could write them out in the quiet moments, escaping to upstate New York to record them with her friends Sarah La Puerta Gautier and Jared Samuel Elioseff, who had converted their barn into a studio.
"The whole thing was a family affair," she writes. And alongside her ensemble she captures a homespun charm that feels effortless. If her last album was bare and folksy, "The Window is the Dream" sounds more self-assured, and assuredly more country-inspired. The instrumentation particularly sounds filled out this time around, but Horn's gorgeous vocals - somewhere between Trish Keenan and Sybil Baier - are the draw. 'The Dream' is our highlight, a melancholy but strangely rousing song that's windswept and sunbleached at once. Lovely.
