“The Light” by Moon
Alanna Nuala is “Moon” and her recent release, The Light, is absolutely captivating. This is far from your ordinary lo-fi recording. The Brooklynite makes excellent use of acoustic guitar, synth tones, eclectic samples, and voice overdubs to create a recording that sounds as though it came from a lost dimension. There’s so much depth to this recording, yet it never seems dense or grandiose. It’s an effort for the long haul too–one of those albums I could see cracking my top 20 for 2011 when it’s all set to prepare the year in review. Highlights include: Braids & Bones; The Fish, The Bird; Little Child, Good Mourning; Stray Cat; and Never Coming Back.
