If you haven't yet been exposed to the music of the Athens duo Azure Ray, we would suggest immediately scooping up everything that these two enchanting ladies release. We went nuts over the duo's self titled debut album. The November EP picks up where that album left off...with even more mesmerizing results. Azure Ray is Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor. The two initially gained recognition through their association with Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes). These ladies quickly established themselves as a wholly credible act on their own and now have a legion of fans across the country who swear by their music. Fink and Taylor's tunes are quiet, reflective, and melodic....but the band's vocals are what make them so truly amazing. We have seldom in our lives ever heard such passionate and amazing vocals from any band...EVER. These girls' voices are so good that we actually get SHIVERS listening to their music. The songs are basic slow folk with subtle electronics playing a supporting role. But there's something different...something unique and difficult to describe...that pushes the music to another level. If you think we're going overboard here or merely gushing praise for the sake of gushing, one listen to this EP will convert even the most jaded of listeners.Surely and without a doubt one of the best acts on the planet. AMAZING. (Rating: 6)
