Gorgeous, haunting, challenging

Look, I don't write a lot of music reviews. People like what they are going to like and nothing I say can change a person's musical taste. But ever so often I come across an artist by pure whim and I am blown away. I can't get enough. Cat Power did it to me, Eleni Mandell did it to me and now Torres has done it to me. I can't even remember what it was to put her on my radar. But I was lucky enough to get Sprinter on vinyl with a digital download. I can't stop listening to it. the Exchange, the last song on the album is as haunting as anything I have ever listen to. All I ask is that you consider buying this. It may become your favorite album of 2015.

Pure Beauty

On this album she reached the peak of her creativity. This album has marked her career and is a high point. The disc is about religion and her doubts. Her music is heavily influenced by her history in evangelical churches in the States. The best song is "Exchange" which ends this powerful CD. It tells the story of the struggles of an adopted child. There is a heavy gothic sound, which you can obviously hear on the track "Cowboy Guilt." She is also influenced by Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. In each song there seems to be a volcano which is ready to explode. She almost always perfectly balances the dark side of existence with her distorted guitars. It is a disc which perfectly marks this time of insecurity. It is a must buy.

Beautifully haunting!

Kind of like David Bowie meets Silverchair. I can dig it!
