Brigid Dawson and the Mothers Network
Brigid Dawson's commanding ballads melt American roots music into sludgy, yet punchy, misty-eyed hallucinations.Lovely though it may seem from a distance, the striation of loss quicksilvered throughout provides weighty balance to her contralto lilt. those familiar with her harmonic counterpoint from her time in Thee Oh Sees/OCS know she can belt as well as Lullaby but there’s a fresh and smoulderingly heavy swing in her step on display here that we mightily dig. the record features friends from Eddy Current, Sic Alps, The Fresh & Onlys, Sunwatchers &, naturally, Oh Sees. The results are spellbinding. this is thrillingly potent stuff.“A transcendent, jazz-inspired masterpiece from the former oh sees member” 4.5/5 – uncut.
