ARTIST / BAND: CIBELLE
SONG (MP3): PHOENIX
ALBUM: The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves
LABEL: 6 Degrees Records
INFO: The London-based, São Paulo raised, singer Cibelle, (pronounced see-BELL-ee), burst on the scene in 2003 with her beautiful, smoky voice on her self-titled debut. Her second album, The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves, is a quiet masterpiece, full of inventive and quirky arrangements. It combines rootsy acoustic instrumentation and electronic processing, noise guitars and children's toys, fascinating textural soundscapes and pure melodies. This record brings to mind such singular talents as Björk and CocoRosie. Like them, Cibelle is a gifted storyteller. She has a keen ear for unusual textures which give each of the album's fourteen tracks the power to surprise. read more from the source...
