Album Name: Black Feather Wings
Artist: Bourbon Princess
Year/Label: 2003 / Accurate Records
Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Bourbon Princess new album is a sharp delight. Their sound is darkly jazzy and singer Monique Ortiz vocals are strong focus. She sounds a bit like PJ Harvey while the band’s resemblance to Morphine is easily explained by that bands Dana Colley playing here.
“Another Day” sees the band’s neo jazz taking on a noir-ish flavour.
Ortiz sings suggestive words as Colley plays the sax. “I’ll Take a Cab” shows Ortiz singing powerfully while the band are in perfect synch.
The moody “Early Train” is very affecting.
“Jerkoff” is a rockin’ tune that sees Monique Ortiz sounding spiteful as well as sultry.
The lovely “One of these days” is a soft, but potent track with some great piano bits.
“Black Feather Wings” is a great album.
