Selections in Time

EW = Radiohead + (Fiery Furnaces – total bizarrity) + Tom Waits

As melancholy and complex as scarcity musicianship can muster, Eliza Wren ‘s (new to SLC from Austin) compositions seem good for sleeping, but great for strange dreaming too. SLUG’s own RMP describes her as “a gruff angel of sorts,” but only in an eerie heaven could the lost loves Wren speaks of evoke such songs. She’s a heap of instruments at her fingers, but seems more likely to fondle a lone banjo, crisply voicing breath-cut melodies than anything. Welcome to Salt Lake City, Eliza.www.elizawren.com
