Mesmerized by the sirens

by Black tape for a blue girl

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
lowing on its haunting thread . . . ethereal music enveloped in a lush dreamscape atmosphere. In the summer of 1987, Sam and Oscar are joined by Sue-Kenny's lovely British vocals for the most mysterious of their releases.

"Mesmerized by the sirens is elegantly pained music: an assemblage of entrancing, blackly romantic sound paintings." (THE BOB).

"Sadly nostalgic of your loneliest days, gently disturbing music that sends your mind adrift on an ocean of reflection." (BSIDE).

"This is by far the most subtle release on the Projekt label. A mix of vocals, acoustic and electric instruments, and electronic treatments works perfectly, establishing a natural balance. Sue-Kenny Smith's otherworldly voice (reminiscent at times of Virginia Astley) complements the sad, bittersweet tone of the songs. The lyrics are riveting." (OPTION)

"The ethereal, evocative, and somewhat existential Sam Rosenthal spins a euphoric tapestry of melody and mood on this, their second release. Lush vocal harmonies and landscapes of synthesizers and subtly enriched acoustics flow from track to track like an unfolding story." (ROCK EXPRESS)

"If you can take it, Mesmerized by the sirens is not without rewards. Its bitter, hurt lyrics are soothed somewhat by the more gently pained, drifting music." (THE BOB)
