A stunning exercise in subtlety, creating, by turns, an atmosphere of brooding resignation and a wistful sense of detachment. Faith & Disease employ solid guitar work and an exotic array of percussive instruments to deliver a simple, sincere, and soft-spo


Insularia is the fourth album from Seattle-based Faith & Disease, a four-piece employing the merits of dynamic restraint, sonic ambiance and gentle melodicism as the primary components of its musical blueprint. Led by the strong, unwavering voice of Dara Rosenwasser, the band follows the lead of fellow music-to-nod-off-to notables Spain, Low or Mazzy Star in the design of its minimal, downtempo pieces. Faintly outlined blues and country structures inform most of the songs here, washed over by ghostly reverbed guitar and Rosenwasser's angelic vocals. With the addition of some equally dreamy violin, pedal steel, organ and flute touches, the album takes on an aura of quiet, abstract beauty. "Perhaps...Persephone" showcases Rosenwasser's sensual tone, her haunting delivery lifted by some slowly winding guitar and a billowing dust storm of violin and percussion. "Marie Don't Sleep In Your Makeup" is moodier still, trading off between Rosenwasser's pristine vocalizations and some spare guitar lines. Also check out the equally shadowy and suggestive "Birthday Party" and "I Come And Stand As Every Door."
