Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

HEADLESS HEROES

The Silence of Love

2009-05-04

This album is a project put together by producer Eddie Bezalel. He sought out the musicians to make an album of (sometimes obscure) covers. This is indie-folk-pop with a dark, dreamy feel. The piece' de re'sistance, however, is singer Alela Diane on vocals. Her voice combined with the arrangements, production, and choice of covers is what makes this interesting. Some of the covers are classics, such as Nick Cave's "Nobody's Baby Now" and Jesus and Mary Chain's "Just Like Honey". There's older, obscure stuff here though, like Juicy Lucy's "Just One Time" and the Gentle Soul's "See My Love". All in all, this is a really nice production that would best be listened to late at night, after the party. Rebecca Ruth
