bemydelay Hazy Lights (LP, £14.95)label: Boring Machines
'Hazy Light' is the new album from ByMyDelay, the solo project of Marcella Riccardi (Blake/e/e/e, Franklin Delano, Massimo Volume), singer and guitarist. Her interest in archaic blues, guitar loops and delays was the main inspiration for her first album 'ToTheOtherSide?', released on Boring Machines in 2011. The new album, entitled 'Hazy Lights', is a more stripped down affair. Most of the loopers and delays have been put aside, in favour of a more organic and simple texture of light arpeggios where the beautiful voice of Marcella can float freely and gently. The record is a collection of folky songs which move to another concept of psychedelia. This time is more rural and human, reminding a lot some of the British folk tunes. The record sees the accompanying of Maurizio Abate who uses bass, electric guitars, lapsteel, harmonica, tanpura to create a gentle flow of sounds around BeMyDelay's minimal guitar plucking.
