Smoke Notes

This latest release from Arch Hill Records continues the rise of that label as one of the finest sources of new New Zealand music.
With ex-Subliminals member Stephen Reay as one half of the Haints duo, you might be expecting another dose of out-and-out sonic noise, but, from the first softly plucked guitar notes that start the album, it quickly becomes apparent that this album is a far quieter, more introspective affair than anything Reay's previous outfit produced.
Recorded in 2005 when the other half of the duo, singer Kathryn McCool, was visiting Auckland from her home near Melbourne, the simple and spontaneous production perfectly suits the content: sparse and spare tunes, almost all of which contain nothing more than McCool's voice over a backing of gentle acoustic guitar.
With hints of the great NZ alt-country band The Renderers, or, as the duo say of themselves - "Julee Cruise meets the Carter Family" - there's a brooding, dark quality to this album that hints at the mysterious and unsettling - not too surprising really, consider that 'haint' is an American South colloquialism for 'ghost'.
Just why Dean Hall is haunted by such melancholy musical apparitions is anyone's guess, but these imaginary supernatural encounters are all to the listener's very real benefit. Recommended.
