JENNIFER GENTLE - The Midnight Room

jennifer%20gentle-midnight.jpgNeither a solo artist nor female, this duo comes from one of the more unlikely places for indie rock: Italy. Listening to The Midnight Room, however, the benefits of their Italian music heritage are clear. Like the soundtrack work of Morricone, the music of Jennifer Gentle is simultaneously accessible and deeply weird. As such, it brings to mind other fractured psych-pop writers like Captain Beefheart and Syd Barrett. The Midnight Room requires patience and an open ear for the unexpected, but its wheezy, sighing, whimsical, morphing qualities make for a fascinating listen.
