Lia Ices, 'Grown Unknown' (Jagjaguwar)

Grown Unknown
Critical Mass
Release Date: January 25, 2011
Label: Jagjaguwar

by Jon Young

Don't be deterred when Lia Ices coos solemnly, "We know that magic is a part of life." Whether you consider her mystical lyrics transformative poetry or airhead jabbering, there's nothing silly or lightweight about the accompanying music. Ices' lush melodies and dreamy voice will convert skeptics and mesmerize supporters of Kate Bush and Joanna Newsom. Pick hit in another universe: "Daphne," a majestically haunting duet with Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), recounting the Greek myth of a woman transformed into a tree.
