FRAY HALO

After barely a year of existence, this Lawrence-based quartet has thrown a recorded effort into the fray. Full of adventurous guitar experimentation, eerie keyboards, and sultry/spooky singing from Christy Miles, this disc brings to mind Portishead, My Bloody Valentine, and, at times, fellow newcomers to the scene Aerialuxe. Noisy but beautiful, Fray Halo rocks a bit on songs such as "Forty Winks" while maintaining a dreamy ambience. Miles' vocals, whether in pure or distorted form, power the album, while rumbling bass and overlapped effects provide an intricate backdrop. Expertly recorded and mixed by Shiner's Paul Malinowski, Fray Halo might be the year's finest debut to date.
