Instantly entrancing, 2009's What Would I Do Without You is more an aural journey than a mere listen. Maybe you file this somewhere in the world of nuevo-folk artists, or maybe it's dark psychedelic ambiance, but compartmentalizing BERU (the moniker assumed by solo artist Jessica Collins) does these sounds a disservice. A breathy excursion clouded with misty eyes and led by airy vocals intent on complete mesmerization, this release bounces between sweetly innocent and painfully simple moments of emotional exposure to confusing swarms seemingly created for the sole purpose of concealing those very same emotions. Powerful music that will leave you simultaneously contemplative and elevated.
