ZELL ROW “Siren Songs” C10 (Glowing Dagger)

Zell Row’s got the darkwave thing down: propulsive drum machine rhythms, eerie synth, post-punk bass, all accompanied by her sultry voice (a discussion of which shouldn’t exclude singers like Siouxsie and Hope Sandoval). Amanda Martinez is the artist behind Zell Row, and this initial missive is a great introduction. Three tracks, three deeply entrancing tunes, three times I’m crashing my ship into rocks (because, you know, the siren thing). One EP simply isn’t enough – we’ll have to be patient, I guess, for a little bit more…

Till then, you’ve got ten minutes of puslingly zoney (or zoningly pulsing) Zell Row tracks to get through. Hop to it!
