Itasca – After Dawn

I’ve read somewhere Kayla Cohen’s moniker Itasca described as drone-folk, which I kind of liked. I’ve also read her being compared to Lana Del Rey – a weak and empty-headed elucidation – that I didn’t like, let alone understand. The beautiful “After Dawn”, as the rest of her new album Unmoored By The Wind, is trimmed down, intimate folk music of the highest order. Indeed, her voice possess some drone-y qualities that hovers above mournful fingerpicking acoustics; capturing moments that belongs amongst folk music greats like Linda Perhacs and/or Sibylle Baier (as Gorilla vs. Bear so accurately pointed out). Watch for Unmoored By The Wind on Matt Monandile’s (Real Estate, Ducktails) label New Images, out October 15. PreoOrder here.
