Trespassers William, Dave Fridmann
Having evokes a desert landscape in its sound. Open spaces, arid guitar-lines, the heatwaves of effects/pedals/delays and Anna-Lynne Williams' hazy, just-below the horizon vocals. Though often lumped in with the "dreampop" movement, their melancholic sound reminds one more of the slo-core merchants Low wedded to the desultory countrified psychedelica of Mazzy Star. Williams' voice sounds like Aimee Mann's; but her delivery recalls the whispery way Margo Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies sings. Her singing is like a tumbleweed across the illusory, dry landscapes of the music. (email@example.com)
Trespassers William covered "Love Is Blindness" for Even Better Than The Real Thing: A Tribute to U2 (2001) and Suzanne Vega's "Left of Center" for Isn't She Still...The Pretty In Pink Soundtrack Revisited (2000).
