Easily the most rewarding part of Speak Into My Good Eye is meeting new people. I owe my last job to it, my last two relationships and countless other experiences and relationships I’ll cherish forever.
A few weeks back, I had the good fortune of meeting up with the multi-talented Caitlin Pasko for a drink to talk shop while cutting straight through to the hearts of some matters. We were able to commiserate over our similar jobs and past relationships, but it would still be a few more weeks before I would get the time to lisen to her stunning new album as a solo artist, Glass Period, in full.
I’m a big proponent of creating intimacy with the use of space in music, and Pasko, along with Zula’s Henry Terepka, thread each key strike and sonic swell masterfully against a pitch black void. Today, I’m highlighting album cut, “Me Alone.”
As the opening lines juxtapose strength against vulnerability (“If you want to be alone, then be alone, be alone) Pasko tries on different masks through each progression building strength along the way towards a Destroyer-esque crescendo.
