Traveling Bell. Scatter Ways

Traveling Bell. Scatter Ways (secret eye, 2005)

"One of the members of Spires, Kathleen Baird, recording under the name The Traveling Bell, finds, perhaps a slightly better balance, and an easier (but certainly not lazy) sound with her lovely solo album Scatter Ways. Baird takes a generally more melodic approach to her own music, but the odd touches of dissonance still creep in here and there. Acoustic guitar playing is sprinkled with soft drones, distant bells, jangling, shaking percussion, wind instruments, and various brushstrokes of organic sound, along with Baird's vocals. Far from having the airy kind of voice of the typical female singer/songwriter, Baird's voice is expressive and unusual, and she's not afraid to utilize her singing to create strange sounds, though she doesn't do that as much on this album as in the group context with Spires. She also throws in a few evocative, instrumental cuts on the album." Aural Innovations

Take 427!
