Sister Crayon – “(In) Reverse”

With shades of Nudge, but with more of a focus on the vocalist’s soft but soaring voice, Sister Crayon’s Bellow is a thoroughly pleasant album which, while it rarely ventures too far in any direction, succeeds very well at what it does. There are a few times when they transcend their own type – the brief ending revel of “Stem,” or the mechanical repetition of “Anti-Psalm,” but for the most part it’s just a beautiful place to inhabit for an hour or so.
