Dear Discriminating 7" record purchaser,
Our new favorite label, Austin's Keeled Scales, dropped a 7" from Caitlin Kraus Torres this last June. "Waiting for the World" begins with a dark, shaking sound before the melody and instruments begin to creep in and Torres shows off her strong vocals. You'll hear traces of Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten mostly because of Torres' vocal strength. But, that's not the entire showpiece here. There's a understated but sophisticated orchestration that creeps in during the track. While we begin with what seems to be solely noise, by the end, "Waiting for the World" becomes a lush almost chamber pop piece that ranks right up there with bands like The Castanets.
