Octobεя Pяojεct - S/T (1993)
Shimmering early 90's alternative folk pop-rock with a New Age touch here and there, distinguished in twelve gorgeous tracks via great arrangements, performances and the unbelievably sumptuous, yet powerful voice of one Mary Fahl. AMG (All Music Guide) gave this record a pathetic 1 1/2 stars out of 5 for "predictable naturalistic imagery" on the lyrical front, but guess that shows how much they know about good music eh?
If you like distinctive records that don't fit too easily in a box and enjoy the sort of pleasure one receives listening to classic records that even your Indie friends have overlooked, then this debut might just be the set of cuts you're looking for.
