Hope Sandoval / Mazzy Star
Another haunting voice and presence. An old blues sound. And so mysterious. I love all her music w/ Mazzy Star, her collaborations with Jesus and Mary Chain, and her recent work titled, Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions. She is apparently also working on a new album after 5 years. I've never been fortunate enough to see her live, but from what I've read and seen on video, her stage prescence is undeniably powerful. She never addresses the crowd and usually doesnt stare out into the audience either as she has a large fear of performing live. Too many favorite songs to list, but "Halah", "I'm Sailin" (a cover of an old blues artist, Memphis Minnie), "Blue Flower", "Taste of Blood", "Be My Angel", "Fade Into You", "Into Dust", "She's My Baby", "Flowers in December", "All Your Sisters", "Happy", "Look on Down from the Bridge" are favourites and that doesnt even begin with her solo work. Please discuss if you love her and her music also.

She has the sweetest, most delicate and lovable voice I have ever heard. I love her airy singing and music

I can't stop listening to ''I've been let down'' at the moment..

So there is a thread......

Mazzy Star is classic. Hope Sandoval is such an ethereal character. Lovely voice and such poignant lyrics.

Favorites are 'Halah', 'Flowers in December', 'She Hangs Brightly', 'Ride it On', 'Into Dust' and of course, 'Fade into You'...

As much as I love Mazzy Star, Hope Sandoval solo makes me want to stick my head in an oven.

Thanks for bumping this thread back. Is there news for new music from her? I'd love to hear her voice again. She's like Courtney, in that she takes so long between albums that there's almost a forgetfulness for a bit, but then they return unexpectedly. I just hope she still is creating music and using her beautiful voice, Hope.

I adore a little-known band named Elysian Fields, and last.fm keeps recommending Mazzy Star/Hope/The Warm Inventions based on their similarities...

'Elysian Fields'... lovely appellation.

Thanks for the recommendation, Jennifer. I'll give it a listen soon enough...

LetThemEatCake, last I heard, Hope is expecting.

Yes! You must. I've heard the vocal delivery (courtesy of Jennifer Charles) described as smoky, velvety, come-hithery... I would say all those descriptions fall short.

Extremely short. Words fail to capture it. It suspends you in an orb of insoluble sensuality...

A new obsession has been discovered it seems... several bows to you, Jennifer...

Oh! I was considering the metaphor of her voice being that of an alluring hypnotist's, excavating your darkest memories for the purpose of her games of seduction. But I read over it and laughed. It's close to accurate, but anyone who hasn't heard simply can't imagine! :p I'm glad you love it.
