art by Nadine Mooney
Nadine Mooney's first full length recording, MouseHouseWormHole, was originally conceived as "Ghost sculptures while the artist studied at Pacific Northwest College of Art. The 10 songs on MouseHouseWormHole are as enigmatic played forward (on the first half of the album) as they are disquieting in reverse (on the last half of the album). Recorded solely by Nadine Mooney on a dying cassette 8 track during the summer of 2007, it is her romantic and organic antithesis to the digital changeover. Flutes, whistles, chimes and shakers accompany her signature primal-warble and delicate guitar plucking to create a singular musical landscape that is a spellbinding work in both forward and reverse.
Praise for MouseHouseWormHole
"On MouseHouseWormHole, thinly plucked guitar melodies accompanied by lightly back-masked textural ambience lays the groundwork for a multi-tracked tapestry of Mooney’s vocals to soar over. Her off-kilter soprano is delicate and meticulously crafted, with layered melodies continually weaving in and out of each other. Like Lucinda Williams or early American folk and blues, her voice is fairly raw but characteristically her own. "
-Tiny Mix Tapes
"This is a very unusual recording from a very unusual young lady... This CD features tunes that begin where music boxes are wound up ever-so-slowly before subtle psychedelia sets in. The first ten tracks are peculiar indeed...but the second ten are made even stranger by the fact that they are played in reverse (even the song titles are delleps sdrawkcab).... Rarely do we come across albums this unique and different. An easy TOP PICK for March 2008. (Rating: 5++)
