iTunes Review

"Chris Pureka's How I Learned to See In the Dark opens with ""Wrecking Ball,"" a slow-burning ember of Americana folk, ingrained with the timeless tones of an old acoustic guitar. Pureka's haunting singing contrasts with her lilting inflections. The result is a husky texture that is somewhat similar to that of Jesse Sykes or Mary Gauthier. On ""Broken Clock"" her voice rests more organically in a higher register, allowing for a natural tremolo during the more impassioned moments of the song's choruses. Pureka identifies herself as a “genderqueer” (falling outside the gender binary) and has cultivated an androgynous appearance, though her songs generally focus on the darker pockets of human emotion and interaction, rather than LGBT issues. The gripping and eerie dirge ""Hangman"" explores sound topography with untraditional percussion, such as scraping wood and clanging chains. In other moments like the beautifully desolate ""Landlocked,"" the E and A strings of her guitar provide an ample rhythmic foundation, even when a brushed snare drum seeps into the middle of the song.

Another genius performance

I have loved Chris Pureka's music since the moment I stumbled across her path. This album has more depth than her other albums, and I was unaware an accomplishment of such magnitude was even possible. I'm sure this will be in my car for months... Chris is my favorite artist for many reasons, the biggest being the sincerity she packs along with all of her lyrics. Her abilities on the guitar are surreal as well. A great buy! I recommend her to everyone.


Landlocked is a beautiful song. I recommend it


This cd has been a huge part of my commute... I drive almost 100 miles a day spending atleast 2 1/2 hours on the road and I enjoy having Chris Pureka singing the miles away!!!
