Mariee Sioux- Faces in the Rocks (2007) MP3 & FLAC -For Ana-

"Like bitter spirits and sweet wine, like two tongues at one time, at one time."

The term "ethereal" doesn't begin to describe the sound of Faces in the Rocks. While mostly comprised of Sioux's haunting voice and deft acoustic fingerpicking, the occasional addition of flute by Native American flautist Gentle Thunder adds an eerie thread through the album that, along with the cryptic natural imagery of Sioux's poetic lyrics, gives Faces in the Rocks a creepy fairytale effect. Sure, the ghost of late 60's Joni Mitchell presides over many of the songs, but you could do a lot worse than Joni as a spirit-guide.
