Album Review

Your Bag was released the same year as Lida Husik's debut, Bozo, and, in many ways, it's more like a continuation of that release rather than something completely new. Granted, it's a little more experimental and a little less cohesive, but most of it works just as well and in much the same way. Standout tracks include the wistful title cut ("I had a dream/you were already across the track/walking like a stick figure/never coming back"), "Whirlybird," and "Ship Going Down." Husik continues to evoke Siouxsie and the Banshees' dusky, minor-key psychedelia at times (on "Whirlybird," in particular), although she's more of a one-woman band, credited on this recording with guitar, vocals, keyboards, and co-production (along with Jamie Harley and Shimmy Disc founder, Kramer). "The Match From Mars," which concludes the set, witnesses Husik plunging deeper into electronica — but not entirely successfully. The rambling, sample-laden 10:35-minute track plays a bit like her own "Revolution 9" (not exactly the Beatles' strongest composition). Altogether, five of the seven tracks on Your Bag top five minutes as opposed to Bozo's 12 tracks of a more conventional length. ~ Kathleen C. Fennessy, Rovi

Though these early works focused on Husik's ethereal, psychedelic indie pop, she also experimented with...
