Tiny Vipers “Life on Earth”

July 19, 2009

Tiny Vipers are not quite folk, but they definitely approach it. Really, the band is just Jesy Fortino. She sings long and slow songs about stuff, and they just meander about. It’s no surprise this has been released on Sub Pop. It’s way below the radio.
“Eyes Like Ours” starts out and clocks in at nearly six minutes. It’s heartfelt, like Lisa Germano, but the music is less rhythmic. You get the impression that we’re flies on the wall when listening to the album. That is to say this music doesn’t sound like it was made for anyone other than Fortino herself.
The title track stands out a bit, although in general the songs all sound the same. There’s plenty of passion and heartfelt rendering. I wasn’t sure at first my graphics card could handle all the rendering. The last track, Outside, has harmonizing backing vocals, and it makes all the difference. It is the most listenable song on the album.
This music is best suited for the background of your modest ranch-style home that you cashed in your 401(k) to buy (on a first-time home buyer’s exemption). There’s certainly nothing wrong with it, and it’s very good at what it’s trying to do. But it sure sounds a lot better with bruschetta and a glass of pinot noir!
