Connie Acher is the songwriting pseudonym of NYC artist Melodie Provenzano. Known primarily for her hyper-realist paintings, which undermine her love of 20th Century detritus, her debut album for Golden Lab Records, For Giving, gives way to similar thought paths. Titles such as "Treasure", "Rats" and "Precious" (with its repeated pay-off, "Someday we'll all be gone") tells stories of a young woman in early 21st Century New York City, which are at once banal and weighty. Her deadpan voice delivers sublime melodies over sauntering cadences of unadorned instrumentation - acoustic guitar, bass, drums, Casios, Crumars and their ilk - which reinforce a junkshop theme. They're everyday songs of love and loss - drab revenants of 20th Century ideals doomed to haunt us through our memory of promise. Stunning in their understatedness. they take us back to a simpler time. 180g vinyl with super heavyweight casebound tip-on jackets.
