SASKIA - THE SILVER SHIP (2010)
FABULÓS DISC DE SASKIA SANSOM AMB LA COL·LABORACIÓ DE JIM WHITE (THE DIRTY THREE) A LA BATERÍA.
"With it’s alternately delicate and thunderous soundscape of percussion by Jim White, The Silver Ship is the glorious centrepiece of the EP that shares it’s title, a collection of songs of eerie beauty (the moody Rosemary is a particularly captivating dirge.) I recall crossing paths with Sansom back in the good old bad old days of Melbourne’s rock evolution, and thinking she could mop the floor with most of those pretenders. That it took five years or so from then for The Silver Ship to materialize is a testament to her dedication to her work, and her work – these intelligent, romantic sketches, propelled by her womanly voice – was well worth the wait" Clem Bastow "Elegance is a rare quality in a time of such immediacy, elegance in rock and roll even more so. But one listen to her music and one swift and wide eyed glimpse at Saskia on stage and its hard to ignore the fact that elegance still has as much relevance in this Modern Age, as it ever has in times past. Ethereal, powerful, intimate yet lonely, her music punches and kisses, breaks up and makes up, turns heads and opens hearts. It's infused with a passion that drives, never burns, and a breathy sadness which has the power to bring tears of joy" MB
