Album Review

Atkinson, Wendy – “Last Fret, The” – [Smarten Up! Records]

humana   2/12/2015   A Library, CD


What Wendy Atkinson does with a double bass, spoken word vocals, field recordings (including one song that is only a bucket and water-11-one that has paper-15-one that sounds like the seashore-5), and an ebow and toy piano is create a lovely sound collage. David Lester of Mecca Normal adds guitar on a few songs (4, 12, 15). There is an honesty and freshness to this music that is well worth a focused listen. This is Atkinson’s third solo bass album.
