Ill Ease - ‘Jersey-O-Matic’ (Too Pure)
30 Dec 2003
7"-only from stateside solo female-act; release - '03.
Awkward avant-garde princess, Ill Ease - aka Elizabeth Sharpe - is ever-increasingly bettering at this 'instant' malarkey.
Previous recordings plagued by an air of overriding subtlety, on new 45 'Jersey-O-Matic', a full band tackles a thudding collision of rickety-rackety, growling guitars and percussive leaps, whilst Sharpe herself forms a vocal companion as downtrodden as she is quietly, secretly spirited.
Still a fascinating contradiction, seemingly.
