I love Google translate. But even with a computerized translation, I can tell this is a very sweet review. Thank you, .

From Real Roots Cafe:

Rain Perry , MenVanaf the albums Cinderblock Bookshelves and Internal Combustion I’m a fan of Rain Perry , singer- songwriter from California. Not that I instantly fell for her folk songs , because it requires patience before the glare of the melodies and lush instrumentation radiate at times . For her fourth album One is that in particular , because they use a number of songs of rhythmic elements and funky bass / guitar riffs from the disco and new wave era and also here and there adds some electronics . Normally quite allergic to something, I find it very nicely done by her . Why ? No idea . A mystery that music is hot.

There is much beauty to be found on this ten track album ( two covers of Robert Earl Keen , Chuck Prophet ) that , in his own words , an ode to men who inspired her and stood by . Her beautiful lyrics deal with many matters of the heart , and his strong personal appeal to the imagination . Alternately inserted into a folk/gitaarrock- and singer- songwriter grid and a melancholic undertone as a connecting factor , thanks to its delightful folk voice. Soft, hard , talking or singing whisper , she always sounds powerful, charming and convincing.

About the same crew was present as the recordings of Internal Combustion . Central man here is Mark Halmann , the instrumental rounder (drums , bass , guitars , accordion , clarinet , banjo , keyboards) and great arranger and producer . Reabsorbed in Austin , TX during the sessions where Perry was joined by a number of local musicians, including Matt The Electrician ( for a beautiful duet ) , Scrappy Jud Newcomb and Sara Hickman .
