Ineffable Desire

Album Reviews
Make no mistake, enjoyment of Ella Blame's music will largely depend on the perception of her vocals. Prone to wailing to a different tune to the instrumentation, she is nonetheless a unique talent; boasting a vocal range that will be the envy of many would-be divas. Interestingly, 'Ineffable Desire' takes a largely experimental route with key instrumentalists being Michael D. Temple and Shinji Imai whose imaginative backing makes 'Ineffable Desire' very much the work of a team rather than a solo artist. Occasionally they seem at odds with each others' work; 'Thought Control' and 'Another Side' sees the artists attempting to "out-weird" each other but when they get it right - as on the eerie 'Dance With Me', the Oriental chimes of 'I Can't Sleep' or the brilliant ambient pop of 'How Things Have Changed' - they complement each other perfectly. So anyone who has a place in their record collection for another avant-garde vocalist to file alongside Bjork, Anja Garbarek or Anna Domino, Ella Blame could well provide the answer.
