New album announced for release in March (why so long!) - preview track up now.
I liked the Misty Dixon and indeed her first few solo albums ok but The Silver Globe onwards are just absolutely stunning records imo. They just kind of hit a perfect little sweet spot of so many things I like in music and bring it all together.
Yeah, this sort of where I landed with it. The stuff I like I really really love, the rest I found a little indistinguishable. Still, a 50% or somhit rate is better than the vast majority of artists and I’m very much looking forward to hearing what she does next.
One of the few times where I’ve been in a music shop (Fopp - Charing Cross Road) and actually asked a member of staff what was playing as it instantly grabbed me and bought the album right there. Was Modern Kosmology. Have followed her since. Lovely stuff
The singer has a very clean vocal, the musical instruments used for the music are rather strange, and the whole style is a bit like a high school girl. It’s hard to imagine that Misty Dixon has debuted for nearly 20 years.
Just getting round to listening to the new album, it is pretty good. Didn’t realise she was (or was in) Misty Dixon. Never really spent a lot of time with her stuff but Spotify is constantly recommending her to me on any of the algorithm playlists I check out.
Any particular highlights worth checking out first from her back catalogue?
Loops in the Secret Society is a personal favourite but it’s maybe where she extended the experimental side most so it’s probably less immediately accessible.
Edit - if you like Misty Dixon the first 3 albums are probably more in that general area. I like them just fine but felt she found her sound with Silver Globe so haven’t spent much time with the previous albums.
