Album Review

Helen Money – “Arriving Angels” – [Profound Lore Records]

humana   9/1/2014   A Library, CD

When I first heard this music composed and performed by Alison Chesley, aka Helen Money, I thought, no way is there just a cello on here as the stringed instrument. But there are no guitars. Drums, piano, and drum loops, yes, but cello only, played in Chesley’s unique style that starts out with spare classical precision and evolves into metal rock doom effects that are masterful. This is something Cy Thoth would love. She hails from Los Angeles but is now from Chicago, and she’s hella amazing.
