Cast adrift in a sea of fuzz
David Kipp | Melbourne, Australia | 06/10/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"After listening to Telescopic, Edith Frost's second album, it's difficult for me to believe that this is the same Ms Frost who not so long ago released the astonishing Calling over Time. Whereas her debut was sparse, dizzyingly spacious and recorded with an intense clarity, Telescopic is a dense, fuzzy affair that is somewhat disappointing in comparison. Calling over Time is imbued with a slow, measured sadness that lingers in my consciousness long after the final song has finished. Telescopic, however, is a record of less clearly defined emotions. The tenderly understated Light and the tense atmospherics of Telescopic aside, the record treads awkwardly through a collection of songs of similar musical theme that are mired in a swamp of murky, distorted guitar sounds and in whose mix Edith's voice is pushed unceremoniously into the background. Edith Frost writes moving songs of simple beauty and I have no quarrel with the songs on Telescopic per se. It is, however, a shame that the production of the record has by no means done her justice and in fact has served only to detract from the pleasure of listening to her music in its purest form."

Quietly pensive countrified psychedelia
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Edith reminds me the most of Barbara Manning. She has similar vocal stylings and employs the same sort of low key charm that Barbara does. Both are among the most underrated women artists currently operating in the US, a list that includes Lisa Germano and Lida Husik.Telescopic is evocative of the best of New Zealand strum and thrum pop. Highly recommended."
