Water in a Whale by Jillette Johnson
Released: Jun 2013
Label: Wind-Up
Some singer-songwriters stir up so much drama, you gotta question their ability to function in the real world. Jillette Johnson makes you question the world's ability to function without a constant, operatic level of drama -- or at least the tidal waves of theatrics she commands on her debut. Sweeping pianos, evocative synths, epic metaphors that harness everything from forces of nature to objects of war -- and then there's the lady's voice. Johnson careens from childlike coos ("When the Ship Goes Down") to plaintive rasps ("Peter Pan") to full belts ("Heathen") with a Tori Amos-like range.
