Description

Rachel's newest album, 'Put Out The Stars' is her most ambitious project to date. She worked at world-renowned Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, with all-star producer Jeffrey Wood and such talented musicians as Dawn Richardson (Four Non-Blondes, Tracy Chapman) and Paul Olguin (Mazzy Star, Shana Morrison). With Put Out The Stars Efron continues her inquiry into the inner-life, and furthers her perhaps career-long project of pushing the envelope of pop - both harmonically and lyrically. What separates the album from her previous work is its immediacy: as though the pane of glass to her emotional landscape has been wiped clearer, and the audience has been invited to sit a little bit closer. Standout tracks include the deeply felt opener, "Worst Crime", the crashing and dissonant, Chopin-esque "Closing Day", the playful and ironic tango, "Mourning Dove" and her boldest track, the equally mysterious and disclosing, "Put Out The Stars". The soundscape of the album includes drums, bass, strings, accordion, gypsy violin, and trumpet, but these instruments only hang on the centrepiece of Rachel's sound, which remains the simple intimacy of piano and vocals.
