DESCRIPTION


Jessica Risker I See You Among The Stars Vinyl



Comprised of eight aural vignettes, the album is a wood-grained, amber-hued world respectfully orbiting influences like Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier, and the softest moments of Broadcast. Paisley fabrics fade beneath an uncovered window, while dust and smoke billow gently through the sunbeams that never fully reach the dark half of the room. I See You Among the Stars achieves what the best music in the genre does: pictures with tangible depth, color, and detail painted with only a few well-chosen pigments.

The title track "I See You Among The Stars" trots the album in with bouncing acoustic guitar, lulling the listener into perceived safety before curious chord changes and synthetic chimes remind us we're entering the land of the slightly askew.

This tell-tale lysergic, ominous wonder deepens as the album progresses into tracks like "Anyway When I Look In Your Eyes", a song that parallels the somber honesty and intelligent songcraft of Elliott Smith who borrowed equally from Risker's beloved pool of influences. "Zero Summer Mind" gleams off the cobwebs like moonlight, plodding down a darkened hallway with mellowed affliction.

Like so many moments on I See You Among the Stars there is a perfect thread of quiet despair that renders the playfulness of its surroundings subversive and slightly wicked, making the whole affair psychedelic in the actual sense of the word. Sure, the colors may be brighter, but the shadows are also longer and darker.
