UNKNOWN COMPONENT: Blood V. Electricity: CD

The sonic crossroads where Moody Blues, Dead Can Dance, and Tim Buckley meet, this is the work of one guy writin’ the tunes and playing all the instruments all by his lonesome. Scary, off-putting description, I reckon, but the songs are well written and served up in a way that manages to skirt just past sounding annoyingly pretentious. I can dig it, man.
