Album Review: Dear Time's Waste - Some Kind of Eden

Friday 5th October, 2012 9:22AM

The Room for Rent EP, Aucklander Claire Duncan's first formal project as Dear Time's Waste, was one of the better local releases of 2009. Armed with frosty yet warm vocal chords and an astute, literary voice as a lyricist, her word were delivered in a breezy manner, literally bouncing off the cold wind over a thick, textural sound world of rolling drums (or virtually nonexistent drums), rumbling bass, swirling guitar lines and beyond. Vocally intimate and bedsit, you often felt like Claire was sitting just across from you, singing directly to you. Inversely, within the instrumentation, a genuine outdoorsy (and very pictorial) set of feelings and moods were captured. This was a journey through the splendour of the natural landscape, juxtaposed with rich storybook narration which spoke to the human condition.
