Notes From The Edge

Citysound Music

Kathy Fisher (of the band Fisher) and Mark Governor contribute to the project Notes From The Edge. They recorded a bunch of covers with an orchestra and the results are staggering.

Radiohead's "No Surprises" fits the concept and Fisher's vocals really get to the song's heart. Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" is an odd choice, but they pull it off admirably. The songs longing is perfectly captured and Fisher's voice is stunning. Peter Gabriel's "Digging in the Dirt" becomes more elegant in these hands, but no less tortured. Tom Waits' "Take It With Me" gets a sensitive and stirring reading. This is a fine album.
