Review

"(Walk On By) quite possibly the best songs she's ever recorded." --Stereogum

Product Description

"In this world, you think you have no reason to believe in love or in anything much. Then one day, when you least expect it, a light appears on the far horizon. It's a flickering light, begging you to come, telling you to stay away. It's the pale fire. The promise of love and hope - all consuming and elusive. Yet for a moment, it brings clarity in the darkness, future to the ruins and power to the fight." - El Perro Del Mar

Format:Audio CD
For her fourth album Sarah Assbring takes a swift turn in style but not in essence . Groovy synthesizers don't conceal what's underneath , the wounded heart of this record and the songwriters' bittersweet explorations of love and ( always combined with) loneliness . Whenever i listen to an El Perro Del Mar record , what comes to my mind is a little child , sitting and crying at the corner because he/she just had a fight with his/her best friend . It does sound that vulnerable and truly innocent .

Having just seen the artist live in Madrid , i was amazed at how she was dancing ( seemingly in her own private universe ) on the smokey stage , laying her soul bare to a small but not indifferent crowd ( there was not one poster in the whole town advertising the concert..someone should really fire her agent quick ! ).

Highlights include " Hold Off The Down " , " Walk On By " and " Home Is To Feel Like That " .

5.0 out of 5 stars El Perro Del Mar rocks out! December 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a bit of a change in direction for Sarah. While it is not quite "rocking out," this is definitely more uptempo and rhythmic than her previous efforts.

More than anything else, this reminds me of the Suzanne Vega/DNA collaboration on "Tom's Diner." As with this reoord, the "Tom's Diner" remix combined a modern electronic instrumental track with folk-style vocals, creating something wholly fresh and original. Here, especially on songs like the sublime "Walk on By," or the title track "Pale Fire," that is exactly what has happened. Sarah's vocals sound just as poignant and touching as always, although her vocal style is more singing, rather than the half-sung, half-spoken style of her earlier work. But the instrumental track is faster, sleeker, club-friendly. Cognitive dissonance that works!

This is a great record because it is wholly different from all other El Perro Del Mar material, yet it is still comfortingly familiar.
