Amy Millan Honey From The Tombs (Arts & Crafts; June 2006) Amy Millan - Honey From The Tombs

Before she was gorgeously floating amongst the Stars, Amy Millan was seemingly wandering the back roads of Americana. amy%20millan%20cd.jpg And as the Canadian ensemble staked their highly deserved claim alongside the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and The Dears in the realm of emotive alternative pop, Millan was also revisiting her musical roots.

Written prior to her enlistment in Stars, and recorded over the past three years, Honey From The Tombs sees Millan out on her own and all the more inflicting for it. While “Skinny Boy” fleetingly embraces the lush overtones familiar with her regular musical engagement, the rest of the album stems from far more organic origins. The gorgeous “Losin’ You” ebbs and flows upon a breeze of delicate acoustics and an offering of weary vocals while the restrained rollicking of “Baby I” tempts and tantalizes its way through some gentle persuasion.

When it comes to music Amy Millan is obviously no stranger to celestial wanderings but, with Honey From The Tombs, she is reaching beyond the stars and graciously embracing a whole new musical universe.
