Album Review

Azalia Snail – “Soft Bloom ” – [Dark Beloved Cloud]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   A Library, CD

IntelliGentle pop crumpets recorded in buttery
lo-fi. Waves of multi-tracked vox, in an earnest
childlike delivery. Just a hint of malevolence
lurking beneath the bouncy bright keyboards and
sort of Roy Montgomery style noodly guitar.
There’s a weird sort of contrast here like seeing
miniature winged faeries in a downtown apartment.
Plenty of little glass-blown instrumentals on
here as well. A frail release, maybe more lurking
malevolence (like #7!!) would toughen it up, but
then maybe that would kill it.
