Sky Cries Mary

Seattle band Sky Cries Mary started out as the moniker of Roderick Romero, who released 2 albums of rather uninteresting experimental soundscapes in the late-80s. He then formed a proper band, turning out some of the most original music of the 1990s. This Timeless Turning sounds like nothing else I own. With the soaring vocals of Anisa Romero, they are at times delicate, spiritual and overwhelming. Interesting postscript: Roderick and Anisa now focus on building treehouses and furniture...

no, really:
