THE FRIGHTENING LIGHTS

The Frightening Lights

(Bruit Direct Disques - BR-D12) LP $24.00

Soft, caressing and subtly disturbing, Frightening Lights move like menace through fog. Singer Elizabeth Downey envisions the songs as deathbed confessions, their violence carefully suppressed, modulated through long penitence. Dan Hawkins’s funeral organ, off-kilter accordion, and discordant bowed danbo create eerie, flickering landscapes that surround Downey’s sleepy murmurs.
