Album Review: Norvaiza’s Cathartic EP “Cremation Ground”
February 5, 2013 § Leave a comment
In our latest issue Carly Lewis reviews Cremation Ground, the mandolin-shaped EP by Norvaiza that finally has Montreal-based busybody Todd Macdonald at the helm of his own production…
“A founding member of the now defunct chamber-pop group The Winks, he’s played and recorded with Secret Mommy, Gutstrings and Elastic Fountains, among others. Norvaiza, however, is an effort all his own, ruled by the brooding vulnerability of Macdonald’s echoing baritone coupled with sharp mandolin, intimate lyrics and soft, sonic subtleties.
