since the release of mazzy star's debut album 'she hangs brightly', hope sandoval has defined the sound and style of california psychedelic dream pop. sandoval's trademark vocals and beauty helped to make her a modern day music icon. now the revered singer returns with her long awaited post-mazzy star second album, 'through the devil softly'. since her time with mazzy star, the sought after vocalist has collaborated with artists from across the musical landscape: the jesus and mary chain, air, death in vegas, the chemical brothers, massive attack and bert jansch. in 2001 she joined colm cosig (of my bloody valentine), and backing irish band dirt blue gene, to form hope sandoval and the warm inventions, and released their debut 'bavarian fruit bread' on rough trade (now available again). now on 'through the devil softly', the definitive star of the paisley underground scene reignites her trademark sound in an epic journey across the 11 song album. the project continues the laid-back, slowcore sound they are renowned for and places sandoval s sensuous, hypnotic voice in the forefront. recorded at home in berkley, the spare, subtle arrangements reinforce sandoval's gentle vocal style.
