Christine Fellows, 'Nevertheless' (Six Shooter)

8
Nevertheless
Critical Mass
Label: Six Shooter

by Josh Modell

Though Christine Fellows' fourth solo disc appears prim, even haughty -- a page of acknowledgements cites numerous artists and poets -- an impish impropriety pervades her music. Like a one-woman Decemberists, she loves anachronism and swooning orchestration: "The Goddess of Macrame" hilariously paints the '70s with dark shadows, while "The Spinster's Almanac" bobs happily through a mournful story of loss. Each succeeds, like most of Nevertheless, by being slyly unpredictable, rarely self-serious, and unabashedly tuneful.
