Elfin Saddle


(8tx CD, 43'13'' - Constellation rec 2012)

Emi Honda and Jordan McKenzie, aka Elfin Saddle, originally from Canada and Japan, - they were kind a new to me 'till this record I got, - which follows the debut release Ringing For The Begin Again, dated 2009.
Eight tracks of alienated delicacy (the wild mushroom, they are named after, should be a coordinate), avant-folk is the psychedelic path they walk through, full of unexpected implications, always along the boundaries of a mesmeric oneirism: indeed, the opening track The Changing Wind is filled with those different blows, which, coming in and out, cornered by uptempo's, they make you want to dance feet naked, losing yourself in a ballet animated with trascendental crescendos and daze. The Sun is up in the sky and blinds your eyes, put flowers in you hair and feel the Nature's magic around you.
Boy/girl vocals, with Emi, subtle and seraphical, in english as well in japanese, and Jordan, gently lyrical like a ballad singer.
Think King Crimson's Moonchild as start point, and A Hawk and a Hacksaw as end: you might sense, before you listen, the core of the passionated frailty of this duo.
Last but not least, the digipak is really neat design.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
