Rae Spoon – I Can’t Keep All Of Our Secrets 2012


Get on Bandcamp

“In an instant, Rae Spoon’s voice draws you in. It’s high and vulnerable and open, ready to put difficult emotions on display in gorgeous melodies. That’s the other immediate hook here: the melodies, which are consistently strong and memorable in all nine songs on the Montreal-based musician’s excellent sixth album.

Spoon’s music has grown increasingly electronic over the last decade. But while this album is the most electro-pop yet, it’s too folk at heart and sonically light to get bodies rocking on the dance floor. Lynne T from Lesbians on Ecstasy and Berlin’s Alexandre Decoupigny handle the computer programming and beats, providing a sparse, cool rhythmic backdrop punctuated by electric guitar, all of which at times evokes Miracle Fortress.

Spoon, a transgendered Calgary native, was dealing with the death of a friend during the album’s making, and emotions are high but never melodramatic. AutoTune fun happens midway through, during London Destroyer and the soulful Ghost Of A Boy, which has moving lyrics.”
