"The show is over" is a splendid litany. Dark, melancolic, persuasive.
Its music is often difficult to describe, but in some rare cases, is so incredibly beautiful and diverse that any attempt to classify "its sound" becomes almost disrespectful to the artist.
Nora Keyes is from LA and was the headliner of the Centimeters, an underground Californian band produced by David J. of Bahuaus. The song that you are listening to is from the album Songs to Cry By for the Golden Age of Nothing, which was the first solo work by Nora dating from the far distant days (for the fast moving modern era) of 2004.
How much sweetness can there be in death? How beautiful can a cold winter night be?
As the last surviving leaves fall from the trees, I allow myself to be trasported by Nora's voice. I soar for a short time over the streets and fields. The yellow leaves never leaving my side . The breeze rivives us and almost imediately after the fog wisks us away forever into the darkness.
This is because Nora, an enchantress par excellence, knows how to transform the cruelist destiny into a fantastic and marvelous dream.
PS: "Songs to Cry By for the Golden Age of Nothing", is produced and distributed by Dual Plover, and Austrailian label definetely corageous. Check it out...
