Milenasong Seven Sisters
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Monika
Folksinger Sabrina Milena, a post-art school wanderer, at least knows she wants to make music. And hers-debuting on Berlin's label-home for experimental music made by women-is very unusual. Mixed with Tarwater's Bernd Jestram and mystical folkie-turned-busker Jeff Tarlton, Milena spins enchanted yarns from Norwegian folklore and her own experiences. Many songs reverberate with an Animal Collective consciousness. From the opener (like Cat Power evolving into Siouxsie Sioux) to "Casey on Fire" (mournful gothic vocals over motorik rhythms), Milena puts her eccentricities front-and-center. Not sticking to one groove is her strength, making Seven Sisters a challenging, gratifying journey.
