MUSIC - Tone - Small Arm Of Sea

Tone (Sofie Nielsen) a female "indietronica" singer, songwriter and producer released her first albulm, Small Arm Of Sea, back in January. I've had it lurking around here for a while and never hit PLAY until recently Three comments resulted:
  • I've never reviewed music before. But this one was so impressive and interesting that as I listened to it, I thought to myself: I need to tell people about it.

  • I don't know what "indietronica" is, but it appears to meld electonica, smooth vocals, and a subtle touch of pop. The whole albulm is very crisp, hypnotic, quietly intense, and mellow. There were many subtle effects that I only caught due to my iPod blocking out the rest of the world. One of the most challenging pieces of audio I've sampled in a long while. I certainly won't be working out to Small Arm Of Sea, but I'll listen to it in traffic (or what passes for traffic down here!)

  • Tone was released to stores in the normal man, but also released completely free and unfettered online. You can download the entire thing here.
Grrrreatly enjoyed Tone's first alumb. Well worth the price of admission and worthy of a strong recommendation. I hope other people at least download it and try it out. I'm certainly looking forward to additional works from her.
