Fursaxa - Alone In The Dark Wood Alone In The Dark Wood
Psych New - LP None Eclipse
Sealed 2007 Original. Limited To 950 Copies. “For Something So Simple, The Music Of Philadelphia Magician Tara Burke (AKA Fursaxa) Is Remarkably Distinctive. Her Bag Of Tricks Isn't Exactly Bulging-- She Usually Uses Multi-Tracked Vocals Wrapped In Organ Drones, Acoustic Guitar, And A Light Dusting Of Percussion. Yet The Tone-Hymns She Spins From Those Basic Elements Are Unmistakably Her Own. Burke Expanded This Alchemy To Perfection On 2005's Lepidoptera, Using Atmospherics To Weave Songs And Melodies To Create Environments. On Alone In The Dark Wood, The Fifth Fursaxa Full-Length, Those Atmospheres And Environments Dominate. There Is Less To Latch Onto In The Way Of Structure Or Melody; Where On Lepidoptera Burke Developed Ideas Over Long Arcs, Here She Opts For Smaller Sketches (Almost Half Of The Tracks Hover In The Two-Minute Range)-- More Like Haiku Than Short Stories. Yet Her Curling Plumes Still Entrance, The Musical Equivalent Of A Hypnotist's Watch Swinging Before Your Eyes. The Most Impressive Aspect Of Alone In The Dark Wood Is How Burke's Layered Vocals Never Grow Stale. In So Many Songs, Cycles Of Wordless Purr Recur Nearly To The Point Of Rote Repetition. But Like An Endless Chant That Clears A Meditator's Mind, Burke's Singing Is More A Portal Than A Pat Device. And At Its Best, Fursaxa's Music Is A Zen Koan, As Mysteriously Unsolvable As It Is Beautifully Simple.” – Marc Masters, Pitchfork... more details
