Watching the Nighttime Come CD GIVEAWAYCategory: Giveaways
Fiddle player/vocalist Suz Slezak is a core member of the award-winning indie folk band David Wax Museum. (David Wax Museum is a cutting edge ensemble that seems to be on practically everyone’s “next big thing” list.) Watching the Nighttime Come is Suz’s debut solo album, and it’s absolutely gorgeous.
In addition to original material written individually and collaboratively by Suz and her husband, David Wax, the track list includes a celebrated Mexican lullaby, a 16th century round, and Leonard Cohen favorite, and more. Suz created the album as a musical offering for friends who are also young parents, and the project took on an even more personal dimension when Suz became pregnant with daughter Calliope.
This is a lullaby album that is also a compelling collection of music for parents. Other highlights include “Jessie’s Waltz,” a fine fiddling instrumental composed by Suz for a friend’s wedding, which features phrases tinged with poetic melancholy. Thomas Tallis’s “Canon” presents a round from the pen of one of the greatest Elizabethan composers, here sung in a direct, uncomplicated style that brings it up-to-date with contemporary life.
