Going through Jessica Bailiff's Old Things

E-mail Print PDF
Old Things is a new collection of older tunes by Jessica Bailiff due out on Morc Records on May 15th. From their web site: "This record is a collection of rare and unreleased material, mostly recorded between the release of her second and third album. As such, it can be seen as the missing link between the rather droney second record, and the starker Jessica Bailiff record. This is more than "just" a collection of older material: this records explains why it took her so long to finish her third record: she was also working on these gems which form a regular full length on their own."



Songs like "Your sounds make patterns in my eyes" or "Maybe tomorrow" have the familiar sound of her first records, but already hint in the direction of the more folky current sound. Whereas a song like "Let time breathe" definitely is an example of her more direct approach, it still echoes her freeform guitar songs. The best of two worlds. Most of the songs were recorded by Jessica at home. Jesse Edwards, with whom she also records as the duo Northern song dynasty, plays on two songs. "Crush" was recorded by Alan Sparhawk (of Low), who also plays electric 12-string guitar on that track. The CD comes in a beautiful full colour gatefold packaging.
