The self-titled debut album by New York City's the sours offers eleven original songs that range from cutting, slice-of-life observations, to raw, diaristic confessions. This acoustic project is the brainschild of singer/songwriter Sarah Schrift, joined by producer and guitarist Sasha Markovic (of Yagull and sashasonia) and special guest, pianist Kana Kamitsubo. Weaving through an amalgam of styles and textures, the artists create a rich, undulating sonic tapestry.
The music is honest and straightforward, like the artist, herself. (... which is also reflected in the album's artwork, another side of Sarah's artistic expression; her work has been shown in international art galleries, as well as major motion pictures.)
From the uplifting to the morose, the sours hold nothing back, even injecting a little humor into the equation. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources -- broadly ranging in spectrum from Joni Mitchell, to Amy Winehouse, to Nick Drake and others -- the sours' music utilizes economy, touch and emotion to carry listeners on a unique musical journey.
