Note

"Spyglass" is a collaboration between Alexandra Scott & Tim Sommer (Duncan Sheik, Hugo Largo). Recorded in New Orleans, it reflects Scott & Sommer's passion of ambient & electronic sound and Alexandra's lifelong love affair with intimate songwriting. "I knew right away she was legitimate," says Sommer. "There was an intensity and poise and attention to the emotions in her songwriting and in her guitar playing. Her acoustic guitar and vocals told me where to go in a song." (Alex Rawls, Gambit Weekly).

The record features guests such as Peter Holsapple and Theresa Andersson. The sound is highly textured, unlike the spare, acoustic sound associated with female singer-songwriters. There are Moog chirps; there are tracks of nothing but violin distortion low in the mix.

"Basically, we tried to make a very heavy and hard ambient album, and by the time we finished, we'd forgotten who we were influenced by, and that's exactly the right place to be. I look at 'Spyglass' as 14 mini-albums, each of which is different, but all of which have Alexandra's strange heart, mind, and experience as their common factor." (Keith Spera, New Orleans Times-Picayune)
