Lw by Lidwine Review

Written by GLX on Thursday, April 14 2011 and posted in Reviews

GLX review's Lidwine's Lw.




Lidwine's Lw is a soothing, yet flawed EP. It starts off with the delightful "Until the Light Comes," which is a lovely, relaxed song with a pinch of melancholy. "A Resonance of Myself" has one of the loveliest moments of the EP. The intro starts off with airy vocals and transports the listener into a beautiful, fantastical realm; the vocals and the instrumental work are in harmony. The song's ending falters from the wonderful beginning, but the song maintains its wonderful charm.

Some of the vocal effects hamper Lw, though. The vocal effects in the first half of "In the Half-Light" detract from the song, but not that much; the same can be said of "Release It." Still, the song's structure (particularly in the first half of the song) keeps the song from being great. Despite my gripes, both songs finish strong; yet it must be said that "In the Half-Light" is the stronger track of the two.

Even when Lw's content falters, Lidwine's vocals and style keep things from getting bad. Her vocals are reminiscent of Bjork, while the instrumental work is similar in style to Joanna Newsom. Hopefully, Lidwine will continue to grow as an artist. She's a talented individual that has plenty of potential. For now, check out Lw. It's at least worth your time to sample some of her songs.

7.6* out of 10*
