Lugubrious, meandering alt-pop-meets-folk-meets-americana from the Australian artist who released her new album of the same name via her own Kallista Records imprint last week.
The product of an audio diary kept on a 4 track cassette machine throughout 2019 and 2020, Cork-based musician Elaine Howley’s new album The Distance Between Heart and Mouth is quietly obsessed with memory and nostalgia, painting a sepia-tinted picture across nine richly atmospheric and at times disquieting tracks. Opener and lead single Silent Talk sets the scene perfectly.
I don’t think I’ve featured any other artist on this blog as much as Bad Flamingo – but they’re just so remarkably, consdiently good, so for this I make no apologies whatsoever. The Fifth Of June is another sultry, country-meets-alt-pop mashup that sounds like nothing else out there
