Album Review

Places, the – “Autopilot Knows You Best, the ” – [Absolutely Kosher Records]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   A Library, CD

Are you people ready to mope! I know I am,
and singer/strummer belle-on-a-bummer Amy
Annelle is. She just may put The Places on the
musical map. It’s a slo-core center of vox,
guitar and drums weighted and antiquated with
dulcimer, fiddle and banjo. Her vox are way
up front, often multi-tracked to multiply the
whispery intimacy. It’s a slow dance with the
saddest princess at the ball. Many tracks
segued with Forties style news bulleting
snippets, kind of a jarring juxtaposition to
the overall mood. Syd Barrett cover, debut
of this band from Portland (Amy’s had solo
singer/songslinger things out before)
