A WHISPER IN THE NOISE / As The Bluebird Sings [2006]

On his 2006 sophomore album As The Bluebird Sings, West Dylan Thordson (aka A Whisper In The Noise) wrote and recorded everything from his house (an abandoned elementary school) in a forgotten town populated by only 365 people.  The haunting and empty atmosphere that surrounded him are made very apparent on the album.  His music sounds like a cross between Danny Elfman, Devotchka and Sigur Ros, with small hints of Roger Waters thrown in for good measure.  It's intriguing, weird and quite often brilliant but unfortunately he spreads his lengthy daydreams a bit too much for his own good.

3 glad hands for Boo Wilbury out of 5
