Album Notes
Namoli Brennet's seventh self-released disc, Until From This Dream I Wake, has her mining some deeper and more personal emotional territory than we've heard in any of her previous releases. A deft storyteller, Brennet now turns her lens inward; the result is a CD filled with a beautiful, aching melancholy that documents the transition from despair to hope. The CD opens with "Grapes of Wrath", an ode to Steinbeck that tells the story of a dustbowl-era family who loses their farm and travels west in search of the promised land. On "Beneath These Bones", Brennet's road-weathered voice delivers an aching portrait of a difficult year. The imagery on "Cut My Tongue" is underscored by a pulsing, breathing soundscape that creates an almost tender counterpoint to the song's graphic lyrics. Other standout tracks include "Let Love In", "Jacob's Angel" and the japanese-garden-inspired "Next Year". As a songwriter who's known as a talented lyricist and storyteller, Brennet has a gift for creating vivid characters and situations; on this disc, she's used those talents to create an intimate self-portrait, with stunning and heartbreaking results.

"Gorgeous and introspective."

- Jamie Manser (Zocalo Magazine)

The Random Hubiak

Instantly Familiar, Never Predictable
Namoli has crafted an absolutely superb album of folk rock that occasionally veers toward alternative pop. Her narratives display a wonderful eye for detail, both physical and emotional, within the horizons of her characters' worlds. The songs are hooky without being repetitive or banal, intellectual without being pretentious, and spiritual without being preachy. Definitely worth the price of admission!
