I’ve been a fan of Pepi Ginsberg’s quirky psych folk for over a year now and I’m very excited to announce the release today of her 3rd studio album ‘Red.’ After a repeated listens I think Red is her strongest release to date and really shows Ginsberg’s song writing maturing nicely. The album itself is a diverse journey tracing Pepi’s many influences which she sincerely builds on and forges her own sound. The songs of Red are only highlighted by her unique vocals that set her apart from many of her contemporaries. Ranging from Blood on the Tracks era Dylan to the upbeat piano stylings of more optimistic Plastic Ono Band tracks; Red traverses from more upbeat psych folk on the song “The Waterline” where overlaid vocals swirl above Harry Nilssonesque percussion and piano to the more serious raw sound of “In My Bones” where Ginsberg truly finds her stride and strength as an artist. “In My Bones” is in serious contention for being one of the most sincere and strong songs of the rapidly aging youth of 2008. Capturing the same emotion elicited when one hears Idiot Wind for the first time, “In My Bones” marks a turning point for Pepi Ginsberg where she truly finds her voice and instrumentation playing together as one.
