Synthesis Weekly Magazine: "Creatures" Review

Rachel Taylor Brown
Half Hours With the Lower Creatures
Cutthroat Pop

Goddamn phone keeps ringing all throughout the train station. Pick it up to hear the last boarding call for the train to the mystical paradise of Half Hours With the Lower Creatures. Travel across piano key after piano key being pushed along with eerie guitar licks. Float over fields of green grass and trees full of the most forbidden fruits, feeling every feeling ever conveyed, all on the cotton pillow voice of Rachel Taylor Brown. With lyrics like "Did Abraham say anything to Isaac, like 'I'm killing you today?'" Rachel Taylor Brown tramples on the weeds of cliche and anything else that could cloud her paradise and leaves nothing but a beautiful album. Make sense? Buy it.
