Lovely folk pop from Emily Cross. here’s what it was written about her debut record. this 10″ seems to go in the same direction.
“Weaving in and out of melody and discord, Cross Record’s first full-length LP Be Good leaves the listener trembling. A myriad of sounds — strings, clarinet, flute, steel drum, bells, tape distortion, and other instrumentation — support Emily Cross’ enchanting vocals, which are so captivating that the silences are like black holes. Her raw, unadorned sound, perhaps most akin to young Cat Power or Jana Hunter, is a breath of fresh air. Like her music, Cross’ lyrics are striking in their simplicity, conjuring a dark beauty that is delicately realized by a musician beyond her years.”
The first release in the Positive Beat Lathe Series cut on clear hand-fabricated polycarbonate in an edition of 25.
