Local Reviews: Taught Me

Taught Me
Ready to Go Under
Exumbrella Records
TM = Sigur Ros + Xiu Xiu 
This album seems violent in the same way that a rose's edge in bloom pushing out into the world does�it's forceful to an extent, but you really have to pay attention to understand why. The printed lyrics read like postmodern poetry, using lists and whitespace successfully, and they come across audibly just as well. A lot of this album seems so peaceful and sweet it's creepy, and whether one-man-band Blake Henderson intended it like that, it works to marvelous effect.
