'A Spoonful of Voices' is a collection of songs originating from the Winter on Mars album recording sessions of 2015. All songs, aside from track 1, being an early arrangement, do not appear on the album. After re-tweaking the original mixes these 6 titles appear together for the first time; a half album I like to think of it as. I could not have produced this recording without the ethereal, delightful voice of Deity who also appears on the Winter on Mars album. ~gp
CD version, only from Kumaki, New York, includes the bonus single, The Wicker Man.
1. STEREO STICKMAN "...the music takes control of the room within which it plays, weaving these thoughtful pools of reflection around you, and fusing them with some of the most considerate, poetic, and provocative lyrics to date."
"...you can count on Alien Skin almost unquestionably to provoke certain patterns of thinking that fall far from those of the average person on any average day, and to do so in the most unusually beautiful manner." read the full review here-
2. SLEEPING BAG STUDIOS “The Wishing Well” is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G people. George has selected well when it came to this collaboration with Deity – she’s an absolutely incredible singer…when she heads into the chorus of “The Wishing Well” I just about died and went to wherever it is we go next…it’s just mind-blowingly incredible."
“The Volunteer” is pretty much ALL-hook from the music to the vocals. …it’s GORGEOUS…mysterious, melodic, haunting, beautiful, oddly-uplifting…it’s all of these things and more & a truly fantastic song all-around. This is art. A fantastic tune. Assisted by the stunning vocals of Deity, she adds a completely amazing & exotic texture to the entire sound of this song and really complements what George has already got goin’ on, which is excellent as well.
"...I really do think you have to admire just how much the label of art applies to Alien Skin as music does – it’s tracks like “Privileged Girl” that prove that to be true. From the imagery in the lyricism & story it tells, to the way the song continually develops and evolves the vocal melody, which is always enticing to listen to, but really finds its own peak deep into the song around the 2:10 mark as the song transitions into an incredible bridge."
"...hauntingly poetic & poignant…another trip into the universe of sound that Alien Skin thrives in that’s been highly inventive, creative, artistic, and thoroughly satisfying to listen to on multiple levels, as expected." read the full review here-
