Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the indie singer/songwriter. After being in Europe as a touring member of Boduf Songs, Jessica Bailiff spent much of 2011 writing and recording at the Down-Turned Jagged Rim of the Sky in her Spartan home studio. Down-tuned, distorted bass guitar adds a new color to her palette, but familiar ones also come into play: fuzzed and delayed electric guitar, organ, piano, cello and drums. This is another intimate collection of songs recorded entirely by Jessica at home, in a room next to where she sleeps. If you listen carefully, you might hear her dreaming.

Format: Audio CD
'At The Down-Turned Jagged Rim of the Sky,' Jessica Bailiff's first full-length in six years is, without question, her most focused to date, and possibly her very best. Of course that's all pretty subjective, but for anyone who's a fan of her past work--both solo and her collaborations with other dream-pop/slowcore artists such as Low and Flying Saucer Attack--should have no trouble connecting with her latest.

This album is somewhat of a departure from her last album, 'Feels Like Home.' Whereas that album featured acoustic guitars and was mostly low-key and subdued, this album shows Jessica laying on the distortion pedal--much like her early work from the late 90's--in a way that would make Kevin Shields proud, though this is even dreamier than anything MBV (or she herself) has released, with waves of shimmering, droning guitars that will take you on a haunting, euphoric journey that's actually pretty unique once you dig beneath the surface.

While upon first blush some songs may remind the listener of other current shoegaze-influenced artists such as Tamaryn or Serena Maneesh, it soon becomes apparent that there's a lot more going on here, with intertwining melodies, swirling keyboards, and drones that slowly morph into something else over time. Her angelic vocals blend seamlessly with the ethereal walls of bending guitars, creating a rather trance-inducing effect that's hard to resist being totally enveloped by.

Every song here is very tight and focused, experimental but without the meandering nature of much of her earlier work. Whether that's a good or bad thing is up to the individual listener.

6th release from Ohio artist--soft, whispery-eerie atmospheric dream-
pop with a hypnotic, ethereal dronescape beauty that's coated with an enchanting darkness and
mystery. These are songs that feel naturally rooted in the reflective ritualistic revelation of
celestial strangeness and melancholic charm; driven by warm, quivering keyboards & haunted,
mesmerizing vocal waves. Something like a mix of Mazzy Star, Jesu, School of Seven Bells,
Slowdive, Beach House.
