Album Review

Kent, Julia – “Green and Grey” – [Important Records]

Cousin Mary   3/21/2011   A Library, CD

New York based cellist Julia Kent combines layered tracks of solo cello with electronics and field recordings on this March 2011 release. The result is very lush and pleasant; tracks vary in intensity for a nice mix.

This is Kent’s second solo effort; her previous work was with cello-rock pioneers Rasputina and Antony and the Johnsons. On “Green and Gray”, she succeeds in her goal of combining the technological with the organic.

Reminiscent of some Icelandic groups like Amiina that incorporate a lot of strings; perfect music for a rainy day.
