Kelsey Jarboe – Among Your Kind

March 28, 2010

Listening to this album “Among Your Kind” by Kelsey Jarboe is like coming across a small room at the back of a gallery, filled with amazingly beautiful paintings by an artist as yet unknown, but perhaps not for much longer.

Field recordings commingle here with spare instrumentation, evoking images of what one might call the “American Scene circa 2010.” Images, that is, of burnout, bankruptcy, and dread, but of hope and the possibility of redemption as well.

Really great stuff, in other words — and already one of my favorite electronic/experimental albums of the year. Check out the video, above, or listen to a few of the other tracks here.
