Funny, I had preordered Myopia back at the beginning of the year and it just arrived yesterday. Haven't had a chance to listen yet. She's now on Deutsche Grammophon, the German classical label, which is interesting. I first heard of her because the song "Familiar" was used in the Canadian cop series Cardinal.

I wondered about the connection between Twin Peaks and "It's Happening Again" but this video definitely seems to bear it out. That's one of my favorite songs on the album; I also like the last song a lot, "Mary."

"Familiar" is one of the most immediately appealing songs on the album. I don't know who that other singer is, but he (?) is very effective.

It occurred to me after I posted this that "It's Happening Again" could also have come from the German sci-fi series I mentioned not long ago, Dark, in which the remark occurs a number of times.

Well believe it or not, the other singer is actually Obel herself auto-tuned down a couple octaves. I found that out when I went online trying to find out who the "other" singer was!

Gosh, that never occurred to me. But it does explain why I wasn't quite sure whether it was a male or female voice.

For the record, Obel's new album Myopia is very good. It's in the same mode as Citizen... but is different enough not to sound like a repeat performance.

On my listening list.
