Tara Vanflower — This Womb Like Liquid Honey
(Projekt 93, 1999, CD)
by Dane Carlson, Published 2001-03-01
Miss Vanflower is the vocalist for Lycia, another Projekt band. My favorite tracks on the Lycia I reviewed were the instrumentals, none of those here. Tara “plays” all the instruments: electronic rhythms, noises, and percussion. Listening to Tara croon “I drink your skin in Heaven” over a very simple snare with some electronic noises that would have been cool in ‘65 is not a pleasant experience. This album managed to go places I pretty much avoid and I found it very hard to play it all the way through. Psychedelic beat poetry. Tara’s voice loops around my room and I can’t take it anymore. You have got to like Tara’s voice to dig this one. I am afraid that counts me out.
