Product Description

Don't let the sparseness of the traditional guitar, bass, and drum kit set-up catch you off guard: Dame Fate is a trio prepared to impress and captivate listeners unaware. Time and Tide Wait For No Man, Dame Fate's debut full-length, is an exercise in deceptive simplicity and shimmering beauty. The group features a member of renowned pop group Tuscadero and has been described as a blend of Chrissie Hynde, Mazzy Star, and My Bloody Valentine. Hailing from Washington, D.C., the three women weave rumbling bass lines with ethereal guitar flourishes to produce an album whose solid pop core is overlaid with hints of melancholy and wistfulness.

Yalan's rich alto complements the beautiful meanderings of guitar and sharp drum beats. Alternating between a hush and a roar, her voice perfectly captures her lamentations of lost loves and passions both reciprocated and unrequited. Yalan's poetic vocals, coupled with her particularly resonant bass tones, swirl and spin into an elegant and pensive reverie.

Melissa uses her guitar to layer on strings of hypnotic interludes, and Speck's traps provide crisp and textured counterpoints. Melissa's guitar glides over the lush vocals, at times occupying the main soundscape and then suddenly fading into the background with carefree embellishment. Speck's drums snap with immediacy and partition Yalan's sustained voice.

Time and Tide... was recorded by Phil Manley (Trans Am) and Jerry Busher (Fugazi) and mastered by Chad Clark (Smart Went Crazy, Beauty Pill.)

About the Artist

Just when you thought it was safe to let the lithium prescription expire, Dame Fate offers a healthy dose of their minimalist melancholia. Bassist/vocalist Yalan Papillon, described as a modern day Chrissie Hynde and veteran of Ohio-based bands such as Miss May 66, Shanghai Lily, and Avec des Papillons, makes her desperate brassy alto the moody core of this D.C. all-female trio. The group's noirish torch songs come off like a My Bloody Valentine/Mazzy Star therapy session. Melissa Farris' fuzzy guitar made Tuscadero a householdname -- with Dame Fate, she adopts a unique,stripped-down style whose psychedelic tinges unfurl gracefully over drummer Speck's Mo Tuckeresque beats.The result is a glorious blend of The Pretenders, Nina Simone, and Bauhaus -- tailor-made for a rainy day spin around your turntable.

Dame Fate formed in the summer of '99. As fate would have it, Yalan and Speck were briefly introduced under the influence of champagne and Stoli Framboise, only to be reunited in an alley several months later where Yalan caught Speck cheating some neighborhood kids in a game of craps.

Speck and Yalan soon began playing together in Yalan's basement, working on songs Yalan had written during times of heartache and serendipity. Shortly thereafter, sensing a need for more musical depth, they turned to friend and veteran rocker, Melissa Farris, to add a dynamic layer to the group's developing sound. The three have been playing together ever since.

Flowing in between various musical genres, Dame Fate continue to develop musically, though they retain their minimalistic sound. They have played with such artists as The Lilys, Q and not U, The Quails, David Grubbs, The Lapse, Sleepytime Trio, Tristeza, The Bangs, Dead Meadow, The Sorts, Edith Frost, Lungfish, The Convocation Of..., Songs: Ohia, His Name is Alive, Ben Lee, Retsin, Shortstack, The For Carnation, Trixie Delicious, and numerous others.
