Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Jennifer Terran’s “The Musician” was a fantastic record. Her new one is very special too.
“The America Song” is a dreamy, dislocated song. Terran plays her piano and her voice has a Sinead O’Connor-ish quality to it. The harmonies are haunted and impossibly lovely.
“I would cry my bitter, sweet heart out for the beauty and sadness in everything”
she sings, aptly.
“Opening’s Had” is spooky yet gorgeous. Terran uses the fairy tale of Blubeard as a metaphor for guilt.
“Tide” is a neat song. As ever the words have a mythical quality while the mood is dark.
The suggestive “Multi Orgasmic 3” is funky and fun. Its depiction of a ménage a trois is fascinating.
Terran is a powerful artist and her artistic vision is challenging but always intriguing. This album is a great listen.
