Masha Qrella Unsolved Remained
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Morr Music
Armed with a gentle voice, sparse guitar lines, and atmospheric electronics, Masha Qrella can sometimes sound like Morr Music‘s answer to Aimee Mann. And though the music on her quiet sophomore solo album, Unsolved Remained, shares some of the dramatic qualities of Mann‘s work, it‘s a little too subdued to be soundtrack-ready. Qrella doesn‘t hurry on this album; whether she‘s gently strumming guitar on the folksy "Sister, Welcome" or crooning on the upbeat "Feels Like," she moves at her own measured pace. Unsolved Remained isn‘t as immediately captivating as anything by labelmate Ms. John Soda, but repeated spins will endear you to Qrella‘s fragile pop.
