NOT IN STOCK
Hour of the Trace
"With her second album Jessica Bailiff has expanded and defined the ravishing sound that typified Even In Silence. Hour of the Trace can entrance with Bailiff's delicate and alluring vocals, overwhelm with waves of guitar feedback, stumble along in molasses slow rhythms, evoke country gatherings around the pump organ, or puzzle with a clackety-clack that sounds like an old kinetoscope. It is not only an incredible personal statement from Jessica Bailiff but a work that invites complete immersion. Unlike so many post-rockers content to coast on a few effects pedals, Jessica Bailiff combines serious sonic research with songwriting. It's the familiar aspects of the pop song and Jessica's beautiful vocals that lure the listener in."
