microphones in the trees: bones

Monday, November 28, 2005


"...Bones is a collection featuring new material from Tara Jane O'Neil, often at her most stripped back and full of her raw, alluring essence. Her delicate, vivid acoustic guitar playing is a feature of tracks such as The Poisoned Mine and Without Push, her subdued, enigmatic vocals floating over the top in airy layers of guitar, strings and piano. Other tracks showcase new directions – her burgeoning interest in electronica to allow for new shapes and rhythms in her songs (the beat-laden, trippy melodics of Enter This House and her reworking of an earlier track, Bullhorn Moon) and found sounds that she turns into hypnotic instrumentals. Bones is rounded off with a few rarities, including two tracks from a 2003 minor-release 7-inch single and her sublime acoustic reading of High Wire, one of In The Sun Lines’ best tracks.
Bones is another beautiful step for Tara Jane O'Neil in her growing stature as a truly unique performer, out in a class of her own." preservation
