1. We’ll Tell on You.
The eerie blend of unusual instruments, vocal harmonies, Heidi Harris and Jessie Shaffer:
“… a dulcet blend of soulful electro-acoustic ranging from down-tempo moods to the swift and swarming. Her voice is a gorgeous force of nature, seemingly summoned and projected from the lore of a thousand years of love and loss. There is a whole galaxy of ambience below the surface of the songs in the form of literal bells and whistles, synthesizer drones, talk radio stations, cutlery jangles, and a perpetual breeze of harmonies, all of which coalesce and comply with the indelible folk influences in which Heidi is rooted.”
