November

Lovely mini album from Athens, Georgia duo.

With its spectral harmonies, unnerving intimacy and simple acoustic songs, November evokes the unlikeliest idea: My Bloody Valentines alt. country album. Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor collaborated with Moby on 18 though it's an ongoing involvement with Conor Obersts tortured Bright Eyes project thats more revealing. Azure Ray are far more understated, perhaps mercifully but a similar knack for reimagining tradition is evident, even when the title track shadows Abbas "The Winner Takes It All".
A filigree cover of Townes Van Zandts "For The Sake Of The Song" is more predictable, and no less compelling.

3/5
