Emily Jane White
They Moved in Shadows Altogether
Label: Tailtres

Spawning somber fawning, “Altogether,” valiantly endeavors to rally strong, white-cap ballads around soothing acoustic harbors; nebulous impressions enveloping noble chamber-folk processions in royal chorale incandescence. Eerie calm and saintly patience paints regally conceived harmonies dispatching swollen ghost proposals as White’s polite wind-swept footsteps lead discrete pleads to stately Celtic receptions; delicate pirouettes slow-dancing to fairy-dusted percussion muffled in lush constructions.

Possessed with reliably pliable inflections directing casually jazzy gallops, Wainwright nurtures in purrs and bickering rebukes.

From delicate tenderness to red-flag daggers, “City,” sits pretty, offering refined pining through post-modern torch-songs while upholding bold uncensored declarations resurrecting unconditional love and world-weary wisdom.

Battering-ram stamina paired with outspoken vocals, “Storm,” marries adversarial resilience to unapologetic messages, determined street-punk burns to whitewater-tossed logic and survivalist defiance to unselfish confession.

A mesmerizing performer, Waxahatchee plays Madison’s High Noon Saloon July 20th.

A soothing croon blessed with restless textures inside perfect pitch, Williams’ gilded tombstone baritone melts unwise desires into dark-hearted Valentines swinging on golden-throated hopes and rockabilly melancholy.  Whether unadorned or arranged in anxious danger, aloof beauty consumes, “Love,” with frail bittersweet regalia housing bartered cathartic regrets where brooding solitude proves to be sumptuous company for misbegotten shadow-boxers and garden-party pariahs.
