Tanya Donelly - Beautysleep (2002) Retail CD
Tender and tenuous, Beautysleep is more reliable, unsettling excellence. Tanya Donelly has crafted askew, spacious dream-pop from Throwing Muses through the Breeders and Belly to her solo debut, 1997's folksy and winsome Lovesongs For Underdogs. Five years on, she's returned with a set of spectral songs that are easily superior to that tentative venture. Where Lovesongs... was pretty yet often underwhelming, Beautysleep is a haunting record pregnant with intimations of mortality. Minimalist yet compelling opener "Life Is But A Dream" unfolds in a deep reverie around a motif of an amplified heartbeatmore…: its skeletal soul stays with you for days. "The Storm" is a feistier affair, Donelly's charming and vulnerable tones recalling the idiosyncratic phrasing and joie de vivre of Cerys Matthews. Tanya's five-year break from music has yielded marriage and motherhood, and both "The Night You Saved My Life" and "Keeping You" celebrate her newfound joy and serenity with a passion that only a churl could ridicule. Yet, like her stepsister Kristin Hersh, an inevitable dark dread underpins Donelly's muse: the final track, the portentous "The Shadow", closes with: "I know it stinks / Spinning on my fingertips". --Ian Gittins
