Ask The Night

From yesterday's electric Metal avant diffuseness we jump today to acoustic Folk centricity. Orenda Fink has a new one. If you didn't know the old one, you should not worry, because it is never too late to catch up. Orenda has a very attractive voice, writes fetching songs that tell of a scary world where love can overcome, or not. This is a nicely acoustic folky sort of set with lots of attractive guitar picking along with mandolin, some fiddle and banjo. This is no self-conscious, let's-pretend-you-are-earthy music. Orenda Fink IS earthy. "Ask the Night" (Saddle Creek) brings her into your living space with ten good songs. She is the opposite of pretentious. And I get a warm feeling listening to this CD. Mary Travers may be gone. There are contemporary folkies out there that carry the torch. Orenda Fink is one of the most original.
