2006, Part Fourteen

Christina Carter - Lace Heart (2006)

This is a good follow-up post to Sibylle Baier, as Christina Carter could be viewed as a modern corollary to Baier's earlier work - loosely, at least. One half of generally lauded experimental duo Charalambides, Christina's solo work is slightly more accessible than her collaborative work. That being said, it still is full of disassociative melodies and the long, sprawling beginnings of freak-outs, just decidedly toned down, with gentle electric guitar strumming or picking her primary instrument beyond her own voice. Sounds decidedly Moon Pix-era Cat Power-ish at times (to make a really obnoxious generalization). Really, a pretty wonderful album, and one I've been listening to for a while, so I don't know why I didn't display it here earlier. Here's a song:
