‘Bruised Ghosts’

With stakes in Stars, Broken Social Scene, a number of side projects and a well regarded solo album in 2006’s Honey From The Tombs, Toronto’s Amy Millan is constantly creating. Her second solo album, Masters Of The Burial, due for release on September 8th through Arts & Crafts, was overseen by established Canadian producer Martin Kinack (Sarah Harmer, Broken Social Scene) and includes collaborations from extended muso family members such as Liam O’Neil, Evan Cranley, Dan and Jenny Whiteley, and the always extraordinary Leslie Feist.

‘Bruised Ghosts’ is a lulling, slow tempo number, rich with Millan’s low vocals and wry lyrics. The initially simple-seeming structure is actually rather detailed, with the central, acoustic strumming given a pleasant texture from small patters of piano and a warm, smoky trumpets. Amy proves yet again that she is magically gifted at creating simple, unfussy melodies that transform into original, rain-spun numbers under her direction, and Masters Of The Burial looks set to be another great solo work. MP3 after the jump.
