Sensual Yearning Female Vocals On Vinyl LP!

Female vocalist Sarah Blasko delivers stories of life, love and loss through her yearning, sensual vocals. The accompaniment driven by drums and upright bass, including that of piano, strings & horns, are complimentary and crescendo at just the right moment. Perhaps the tile of the album alludes to the depth of her talents since Side B of the album has a completely different feel from Side A.

Where side B contains more simplistic arrangements leaning more toward alternative techno-pop music and Feist-like vocals, side A has a more mature feel with lush instrument arrangements that compliment her sultry vocals. On "Never Let Me Go", Sarah tip-toes through the despair of the lyrics backed by plucking upright bass and drums, sneaking up on the anguish that builds to a crescendo exploding with strings and soaring vocals accentuating the intended message.

The music on side A, especially "Never Let Me Go", transports the listener to a time & place that may have existed somewhere in the '50s perhaps, to a smoke-filled stage holding the slender female vocalist clad in all black...turtleneck, cigarette pants, and ballet flats... surrounded by the backing band of drums, piano and upright bass...and bassoon? The hippest place to be. Not sure where the strings are hiding, but they reveal themselves at just the right time...deserving a spotlight of their own.

"I remember discovering Sarah Blasko watching Rage, the ABC’ s national music video program, well into the night with a little song called Your Way. Soon after critics and fans alike (including myself) fell in love with her first solo record The Overture and the Underscore in 2004. Fourteen years later she is still around and has just recently released her sixth studio album called Depth of Field. It’s fair to say the 41-year-old indie genius hasn’t lost her incredible knack of producing sophisticated pop. From it comes Never Let Me Go, a mesmerizing and haunting track I am absolutely playing to death this week. Seriously, who am I kidding, the whole album is being played to death!" - Robert Horvat, Rear-view-mirror.com, February 2018

"Australian artist’s impressive sixth album is an intimate exploration of desirehaunted by a sense of deep disquiet

"The songs on Blasko’s sixth album feel possessed of a dark undercurrent, the sort of edge that comes around after you have spent one too many late-night hours waiting for your partner to return home from carousing. You can visualise the mirror ball throwing cascade confusion during the opening song, Phantom, but the lyrics refer to something darker yet, a “phantom heartbeat”...

"...The brace of betrayal songs – A Shot and Never Let Me Go – stalk these lonely streets with menace and unrequited desire in their hearts – brutal and honest and suffused with melancholia. These are as great as any Australian pop I have heard, from Kylie Minogue to The Easybeats. Similarly, Blasko’s music often feels like it follows the lineage of mod and the core values of that style: aspirational, inspirational, forward looking, tightly wound, late-night fuelled...

"Every now and then, Blasko wanders into glam-stomp diva territory. And of course she owns it. The deliciously naughty (not fragile at all) Everybody Wants to Sin is Goldfrapp without the high heels, a shiver of delight to seduce the dancefloor. Every dancefloor. Everywhere."
