ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Intelligently bizarre." -CAPITAL Q, Sydney, Australia

"LA based Hecate's Angels have an arty, futuristic cabaret sound, based around the creative vision of musician Pietra Wexstun (responsible for vocals, keyboards, autoharp and dulcimer, with songwriting and production throughout) and augmented by instrumentation including wind, strings, guitar, and diverse percussion. You'll see strange mythic pictures in your mind, go back in time, speak in tongues and then wonder who slipped that great mickey in your hi-ball glass."—THE CHORD

"A stylish box of delights - whisky smooth and air conditioning cool" - HEARSAY MAGAZINE, U.K.

"Named after Hecate (Heh-ca-tee), the Greek Goddess of sorcery and witchcraft, the band's sound is a kinky marriage of underworld ambience and song, a union which manages to surprise without ever resorting to shock for shock's sake. Lead Angel, Pietra Wexstun teases an astonishing array of sounds from her organ, autoharp, and theremin (that whooping, wailing instrument which leant an illicit drug buzz to Good Vibrations)." —DIGITAL AUSTRALIA

"With its ghostly country moods, twisted shanties and dreamy pop thrillls, it's an imaginative blend of familiar and freaky ingredients" — DIGITAL MAGAZINE, Marcus Leadley

Ethereal Sonic Sounds
Nice to see Pietra getting top billing here. Their is song crafting growth in each album. This one seems more energetic than previous efforts. Take it Away is a catchy hook. I particularly like the funkiness of She Done Him Right, The Guitar and Violin of Stan Ridgway and Lazlo Vickers on Lonesome Stranger and Pietra showing her chops on More Fun Than Anything. An eclectic mix on this cd. Everything from Rock, Jazz, Calypso, Boss Nova & Funk. Bill Blatt and Bruce Zelesnik make for one solid rhythm section. While All That Glitters might not be gold, Pietra and her band of angels sure are.

Can't get enough of this !
Being a fan of the first two albums, this track from the new one soon to come has got its hooks in me! and it's got all the elements of what I love about her work, from the great lyrics and jazzy textures to well, the exotic atmosphere it conjures up in your mind. Can't wait for the new one to be released. Only 5 stars we can give out here ? How about 10 ! please make more. Great cover too!
