Paul & Maurey
(Ashley Paul and Sakiko Mori)
Wagtail's second release, Paul & Maurey's "Satellite",
is a unique mix of songs that teeter on the edge between fact and
and fiction. Ashley's floating vocals, slow turning guitar, screeching
clarinets and string clatter are held together by Sakiko's drumistic attack, simplified rhythm and half motion texture. All while Mori manages to double on keyboards in realtime, giving a sense of tonal weight and precisely timed melodic gesture to the music. Satellite is a unique and oddly addictive sound, adding to the slowly but carefully growing
catalogue of wagtail releases.
