The Dawn Is Your Enemy
Street: 10.16.13
her luminaria = Uzi & Ari + Deer Tick
her luminaria is quietly emerging into the SLC music scene with a beautiful collision of Midwestern grit and soft synth. Fans of The Tallest Man On Earth will appreciate JP Krein’s sandpapery, soulful vocals while Elliott Smith lovers will connect with his emo, heart-dripping lyrics. In “Vine St.,” he reminisces, “I miss waking up to coffee and your eggshell paint.” The tracks seem to have been recorded in a raw, one-take type setting, which adds to the visceral feel. “Love Like Burgundy” features a bell-sounding keyboard riff that adds texture, while “Snow Flurries” is a spoken love story. The Dawn Is Your Enemy is resolute and tender—a proper winter album. –Kia McGinnis
