Product Notes

While doubt and anxiety are common 21st century preoccupations, Gretel's songs evince an honesty and directness usually reserved for confessionals and bathroom stalls. Lyrics of disappointment, denial, love and faith shimmer with precision and intensity, while the melodic and tonal explorations of their music unabashedly suggest that something better might be possible. The sound is eclectic, paying homage to everything from folk music to alt country to the blues. Whether through the existential pinch of a digital pulse, the ecstatic heights of an operatic line or the muddy optimism of a gospel choir, Gretel's palette is broad. Each song sits within it's own well-deserved world, refreshingly interpreted and never underexposed. This New England-based group, led by songwriter and mouthpiece Reva Williams, met in September 2003 and have just completed their debut record, Unreturnable Dirt, on Eyeteeth Records. Currently accepting dates for a neverending tour of the East Coast and Middle America, Gretel offers the strange comfort of unexpected and useless beauty.
