Scarlatti Tilt / Daisy Chapman

Postby Fool On Fire » Fri Sep 21, 2007 5:18 pm

British pianist Daisy Chapman's piano and vocals on her solo EP, Hymns of Blame remind me vaguely of Regina Spektor (especially "The Last Procession"). With her band, Scarlatti Tilt, there's more of a Fine Frenzy vibe, although her vocals and piano are constantly the center of attention (the notable exeption is the song "One Under," which is a bang-up Coldplay-ish rock'n'roll piano number). Their songs are so long they're almost opuses...which fits with the way she plays. She's clearly a lover of classical piano.

I found Scarlatti Tilt's cd Gathering of the Haunted while paging through the stacks at the radio station. I was intrigued by the title/artwork of the cd and the description, which the music director had called in her review "beautiful in the kind of way that makes you forget everything else." And then I did a little extra digging and found Daisy's solo EP.

Scarlatti Tilt's website:

new music is the best thing ever,
I've become the beggar now, and you've become the saint somehow
twist the words and place the blame, and tell me now, aren't we the same?

-- Amy Ray

born under a bad sign, been down since I began to crawl
if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

-- Albert King

the saints and all the martyrs look down on dying converts
"what makes the water holy," she said, "is that it's the closest thing to rain..."

-- Josh Ritter

...the blues is the roots...everything else is the fruits...
