Emily Haines & The Soft SkeletonAugust 10, 2008
Had a listen to their latest album Knives Don’t Have Your Back and there are some good tunes there. The first three tracks are stellar- Our Hell and Dr. Blind have Emily’s lovely tones with some subtle drums and keyboard and the starkness of her voice with the keyboards on Crowd Surf Off A Cliff is simply superb!
Unfortunately the rest of the album just doesn’t measure up to these and are a bit on the soft side- good but nothing that particularly keeps the attention. So had to put on Combat Baby by Metric just to get the vibe back!
You can go to MySpace to hear some of the tunes or just look at the excellent videos- love the style of Our Hell.
Good short interview
