Saltland – “I Thought It Was Us But It Was All of Us” – [Constellation]
No doubt about it, Rebecca Foon has a lovely, hypnotic voice, and she coaxes some gorgeous music out of her cello. Her cohort in this project (as well as in Esmerine), Jamie Thompson, provides a fitting setting for Foon with his percussion and electronics. Plenty of other talented guests make these songs pulse with an appealing, layered sensation of being well-taken care of melodically. Thoroughly enjoyable in every way.
