Hearts & Daggers

heartsdaggersHearts & Daggers is another 2008 album that I missed last year. Kathy Foster of The Thermals mentioned it in a recent interview, so I thought I would check it out.

Interesting! Petra Haden combines her mostly wordless a cappella with violin and Miss Murgatroid’s accordion to make a sound that is a mixture of lovely and creepy. Much of the album is a kind of pretty drone that sounds like it comes from the distant past, or a dark indie movie about the distant past. I’m liking it for short to medium-length periods at a time.
