  • Julia Kent Delay
    Wednesday, December 19, 2007


    Speaking of Antony & The Johnsons, Antony's cellist Julia Kent, (who is as well a former member of Rasputina), released Delay, her solo debut. It's an all-instrumental affair, mixing beautiful melodies with found sound, to a varied effect. While her compositions are undoubtedly wonderful, the brief field recordings between the songs are both superfluous and distracting. She's a talent, and it's interesting to hear her by herself. Pay no mind to those little brief distractions; program them out or give them no thought, and focus on the beauty within. The songs will lull your mind into a beautiful place, and it's easy to understand why Antony has called upon her to add her creative voice to the Johnsons. I have thoroughly enjoyed Delay; I've let it play quietly in the room, especially at night, and most definitely during my post-surgery recovery days, and it helps me rest my soul.

    Listen To: "Schiphol"

    Delay is available now on Important Records
