    Reminds me Leonard Cohen...poetically and musically.

    Check out the duet with King Dude, it's Cohen meets Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, in a good, non-derivative way.

    Well, Border Radio, I have to think that King dude and Chelsea have listened to Cohen a great deal. That male vocal is as ‘influenced’ as it can get. I like these songs once they get into them, but I do not like the intros at all.

    It's not for everyone, and I won't get past Cowgill's beliefs ever, but Wolfe's goth dark folk electro is always a nice place to visit, you know, if you like brooding on the weekends :)

    I think I've noticed a trend towards "drenched in reverb" in the music of the generation to which this woman belongs. Am I right?

    • Angel Olsen
    • Lana Del Rey
    • Rilo Kiley

    and a bunch of other bands I can't think of right now. Strymonitis?

    I kinda know what you mean. Yet I don't think it's a generational thing, to be honest. Certainly shouldn't have to do with all these artists being female. What about 80s/early 90s use and over-use of chorus? Nobody would think to lump hair metal in with people like John Valentine Carruthers in Siouxsie and The Banshees, David Lindley, or Kim Thayil's chorus problem with Soundgarden.

    Fans of dark-themed atmospheric and ambient music, chill, trance, etc, all those ideas lend themselves to finding 'space' in different delays and reverbs.
