Album Review

Heather Duby's Sub Pop-issued Post to Wire politely ignores the Northwest's heavy rock and quirky indie axis, preferring a moody blend of 4AD-style texture and vocals reminiscent of Surfacing-era Sarah McLachlan. Noted producer, engineer, and general Guy About Town Steve Fisk strikes again here, conjuring a great batch of tracks to support Duby's dewy vocals. "Judith" suggests a remixed Loreena McKennitt, while "You Loved Me" gets beautifully lost in treated percussion, layers of faraway guitar, and Duby's own echoing vocals. It sounds like Lamb covering the Cocteau Twins. Other highlights include the spare and chilly "Falter," the otherworldly childhood reminiscence "Healthy Fear of Monsters," and "For Jeffrey," where Duby's near-choral harmonies are supported by the meeting of warm organ and chattering electronic beats. Ultimately, Post to Wire seems more like an experiment in texture than an album. But there's no denying Duby's talent as a vocalist, or the record's worth as a mood piece.

Classic Debut

Heather's first album is beautiful! A Vocal quality worth giving up smoking for, Heather's angelic voice soars on tracks like September and For Jeffery. Focused and Hip these infectious songs are guaranteed to take you out of your world and into hers. After warring this thing out her world must be about white billowy clouds, pristine blue oceans of seas at once stormy and extraordinary. Judith feels as if the sun radiates thought her powerful and blindingly bright. This is the album the cool kids listened to in 99 and still sounds current today.

wow. Smoke that duby!!

Seriously. With great openings as "Judith" and slow-burners as "Kensington Place" & "Falter" along with uppity ones as "You Loved Me" and psychedelic collisions: "For Jeffrey" and "A Healthy Fear of Monsters" "September" (sort of a slow-burner, too) "Halo Sky (MEGA-MEGA pschedelic!!) "Soulflower" 9which is that, and some ambitious electronica) and who could possibly forget "Amygdala"? It sounds just like Emerson, Lake & Palmer. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! :) --andy
