Thalia Zedek, 'Liars and Prayers' (Thrill Jockey)

6
Liars and Prayers
Critical Mass
Label: Thrill Jockey

by Joe Gross

Outside of a silence = death T-shirt, widescreen politics have never been a strong suit of this gravel-voiced vet of such indie-circuit scene-definers as Live Skull and Come. Which might explain her ham-fisted, Bush-is-a-Christian-who- lies album title. Melodrama is Zedek's natural state, and augmenting her touring crew of drums and viola with bass and piano fills out the lyrical paranoia -- guitar rushes and soaring riffs speak louder than words. "I was moving against the crowd," she sings on "Do You Remember?" Uh, when has she not?
