Title: To Touch The Milky Way
Artist: Black Tape for a Blue Girl
Label: Projekt Records
UPC: 617026035529
Genre: Pop

2018 release. Ethereal, evocative, powerful and melancholy, Black Tape for a Blue Girl continues the resurgence of their classic sound on To touch the milky way. On this, their twelfth studio album, they expand upon their sweeping atmospherics and foreboding, engaging lyricism. Captivating vocals from Danielle and Michael accent pieces spanning styles ranging from ethereal darkwave to dream-pop to textural ambience. A contemplative twilight hangs over these seven tracks. Songwriter and bandleader Sam Rosenthal's lyrics encompass powerful personal and transpersonal themes; there's a yearning for connection to a truer understanding of self and our potential - letting go of façade and fears, obstacles which hold us back. The lyrics emerge from the depths of the psyche, they are first-person narratives at the edge where something has to give, something has to change, as the characters strive to take hold of the life they have left unlived. Rosenthal's electronics, harmonium, piano, and acoustic guitar form an intimate backdrop for Danielle Herrera's ethereal, tender, heartfelt voice and Michael Plaster's breathy, sensitive vocals. The emotionally-charged pieces are enhanced with appearances from drummer Brian Viglione (of The Dresden Dolls), violist Nick Shadow, and multi-instrumentalist Chase Dobson.
