Rachel Love Releases Stories from Another Time EP

It seems that ever since we got those Dolly Mixture reissues that Rachel Love has decided she was going to keep the torch alive. Having already released the beautiful Picture in Mind, she’s now shared Stories from Another Time. While only containing 4 tunes, you get two Love tracks, and then two tracks Rachel wrote with Martine Newell of Cleaners from Venus. The tune below was written in the 80s, but didn’t get properly recorded until this year. I think the striking thing is the perfect balance in the mix; it allows for the dreaminess of Rachel’s voice to remain the focal point, while the thump of the drums and twinkling nuances hang right behind her. That drum always seems like it should take off, so I love the restraint in this, never letting the tune carry off into cliche.
