Dianna J with Hypnopomp
A clear and fresh voice rising up from the pack. She takes me along as she sings her story. Her lyrics and sound are modern yet uniquely tied to the folk tradition. I find this song both haunting and revelatory.
Where once her playing was essentially representational and descriptive, with 12-string cascades and plaintive vocals standing in for wind and snow, “Nighttime Birds” attempts to give voice to the fingerstyle guitarist’s entire universe at once. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 23, 2019
