Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
This is one that’s been in my rotation for months and at first it didn’t catch my ear. But over time, as the songs came up in rotation and I knew them better, I started feeling a bit of a kinship with her voice and the songs in general.
Tanya Davis has a sort of muffled sounding voice, like she’s eating the microphone. But it’s cool and matches the music well.
She reminds me a tad of Audra Kubat on Mourn Your Losses, vocally mostly (I actually made this same note numerous times). It’s a lovely song.
Tra-la-la is a little more upbeat and has a bit of a country vibe to it.
I like Fauna too. It’s the last song on the album, and even thought I was not really paying close attention at the time, somehow knew it was the last song. It’s a really great way to end the record.
