Dall, Cynthia – “Sound Restores Young Men ” – [Drag City]
We’ve been waiting 6+ years since Ms. Dall’s last release, which I believe was her first. Her sound: simple, beautiful guitar/keyboard lines, often quiet and stark, fleshed out at times with feedback, distortion, and low drones. Occasional drums and drum machine. A bit of drama. Semi-cryptic credits don’t tell us much about who does what, other than Cynthia’s on guitar and angelic double-tracked vocals. A dog is credited with playing piano, that type of thing. Jim O’Rourke has some involvement with the recording/producing. This LP is lovely and sometimes scary, and it just knocks me out.
