Deborah Jordan - See In The DarkFuturisica Music
It's simply a pleasure to have a brand new full length release from singer songwriter Deborah Jordan. Whether it's her own recordings or appearing on other Futuristica releases, her angelic vocals have always felt like a gift from above. As superb as her previous recordings are her latest release "See In The Dark" is simply brillant in every way. Every song here is worhty of repeated listens but it's best to start at the beginning. "Spirit Of The Earth" starts out with soft fluid piano from K15 aligned with heavenly strings. Jordan's vocals layered on top completes the mediatative masterpiece. "Be There(Call My Name)" begins with the caress of soothing rhodes followed by funky drum programming. Jordan's lyrics are comforting as she assures that she will be there when they need her. The hip-hop flavored rhythms of "Machine" demonstrates that Jordan equally at home on a beat driven track as she is on a ballad. Speaking of ballads, the finale "I'll See you Again" is riveting tribute to her Mother, who recently passed away. Nailing the production behind her is K15, Mecca 83 and Tris Browne. "See In The Dark" is moving, spiritual and evokes messages of positivity. The music flows with heartfelt sincerity. Without a doubt it's one the best recordings you'll hear this year.
