Niobe Pieces Songs From Scraps Of Her Own Voice

Maura / October 2, 2006

The most striking tracks on her new album, White Hats (Tomlab), bend Cornelius’ voice so that it’s darting and wandering around barely-there beats and snaps; “Phosphorous” uses a lonely guitar as its counterpoint, while “Give All To Love” piles Cornelius’ vocals into its own percussive accompaniment.
