Azure Ray - November

This EP is a much better indicator of what Azure Ray can be than their self-titled debut is. Just listening to the way the self-titled EP opener builds upon itself, with cello perfectly complimenting a near-whispering Maria Taylor and the light strums of an acoustic guitar. The song just sounds much fuller than its instrumentation would seem to indicate, and that's a standard practice on the rest of this EP. They make every note count, and the result is simply gorgeous.

If you like quiet, sensitive, somewhat melancholy indie pop, you should own this EP. It's six songs are all excellent slices of velvety goodness which do nothing but work exactly as they were designed to. This is where Azure Ray took the much-welcomed jump.

Baleeted? Nein.
