Album Review

Softcheque – “Misericord” – [Albtraummusik]

humana   6/11/2015   12-inch, A Library


How can they be from Kentucky? The lyrics of these unique songs are alternately in French and English, sung by the beautiful voice of Dane Waters, who also plays accordion and shares keyboards with Arsenio Zignoto. Zignoto also plays drums and bass, as does third band member Warren Christopher Gray (whose extra instrument is the saw). With instruments like these, the tunes are sometimes simple ballads, and other times, ethnic dramatic romps. The saw sounds like a theremin, and harpsichord adds to the otherworldly and othertimeliness of the music. My favorite are the songs where Waters’ lovely voice is the main attraction.
