Inara George with Van Dyke Parks, 'An Invitation' (Everloving)

8
An Invitation
Critical Mass
Label: Everloving

by Barry Walters

"All the words sound so accidental," sings Inara George, as if she's critiquing her own digressive lyrics.But that's beside the point: Although the daughter of Little Feat's late leader Lowell George charms with a crisp, vibrato-less chirp that suits her airy tunes, the star here is Parks, Brian Wilson's SMiLE collaborator, who surrounds George in a florid orchestral fantasia that flickers like a luscious, precisely gardened flower bed teeming with hidden fauna.If butterflies could dance, this would be their soundtrack.
