Estasy - S/T
How To Dress Well's twitter account. I was able to track down a download of this at Bedroom Fantasia. I also ordered the tape of her(?) second album on Living Tapes and proves to be well worth the dough as well. Estasy, from what I can tell hails from Italy. She plays some seriously soothing folkish melodies sung in the high register and approach of what sounds like a 7 year old child virtuoso. Each song usually features either acoustic guitar, warbled bird chirps, toy keyboards, pianos and the like to accompany these insanely beautiful and other-wordly vocal melodies. All of these sounds are filtered through what I can only assume was a handheld tape recorder, ever increasing the innocent authenticity that this album executes and achieves unapologetically. There are gorgeous forces at work inside of this artist and I feel lucky to have had this music come in to my life in the last week. Below is a video for a song from this album. Take the pill.
