Vinyl love: Rachel Zeffira “The deserters” (+ “Here on in” b/w “To here knows when”)

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Rachel Zeffira
Album Title: The deserters
Year released: 2012
Details: Black vinyl, poster, included 7″ single “Here on in” b/w “To here knows when”

The skinny: With The Horrors’ Faris Badwan, Rachel Zeffira makes up the other half of Cat’s Eyes, but here she strikes out on her own with her solo debut. Mixing her classical and operatic training with dream pop makes for some haunting and beautiful music: a little Kate Bush, a little Cocteau Twins.

Standout track: “Here on in”
