25)"The Mid-Morning Recording" Electrelane-'The Power Out'
I had heard some songs from Electrelane that I
really liked, and then in the summer of 2005, I saw them live. That
summer I also showed the girls from Brighton, England that I work hard
as I sweated through an entire interview with them. Was it because they
had worked with Steve Albini? Was it that John Peel was a big fan of
the band? Was it because it was one of the hottest days of the year,
or was it because they are four gorgeous women that make incredibly
passionate music? I'd have to say all the above. Mix all these wonderful
things together in the proverbial musical pot. Add the fact that they
are hugely influenced by early Pink Floyd, and in my book, you got yourself
a major winner. Seeing them live only backed up the fact that this band
bases a lot of their music on atmospheric conditions. This album is
full of space without getting spacey. This album features my favorite
song from Electrelane, "The Valleys". The band told us that
John Peel liked it as well. I love when bands use a electric organ well,
and lead singer/keyboardist/guitarist Verity Susman certainly does use
the keys well. Women and men alike fall for their wonderful charm and
their great music. This is their best album, so far. They have many
more to come, I'm sure.
