Austere Beauty
andy_webber | Richmond, IN | 03/22/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent starting point for those unfamiliar to Loren Mazzacane Connors, deftly combining an uncompromising take on the guitar with melodic grace. 'Evangeline' is a short (30 minutes) and austere suite, centered on the narrative of wife Suzanne Langille's distant ancestor, Evangeline Bellefontaine (also the subject of a famous Longfellow poem). Tragic and romantic, the story deals with the heroine's search for her beloved after the British exiled Nova Scotians in 1746, and Connors' abstractly conveys the story brilliantly. The disc may take a while to assimilate due to quiet, unassuming nature: most of the songs are short and sparse, and the lo-fi recording intensifies its ethereal atmosphere. This is a wonderful album by a remarkable artist."
