Azure Ray: Orenda Fink, Maria Taylor.
A marked departure from earlier Ray releases, HOLD ON LOVE finds the exquisite vocal duo of Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor--working under the guidance of producer Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers, Archers of Loaf)--adding a bevy of real and electronic instruments, to their usual lonesome acoustic sound, with an almost-mainstream result. The Sarah McLachlan-style glossy beats and strings of "New Resolution" and the bouncy sunshine of "If You Fall" will have the pair's melancholic fan base wiping away their tears in disbelief. There's even a merry harpsichord break in the sweeping "Nothing Like a Song."
Not to worry, though, as "The Drinks We Drank Last Night" and the title track return to achingly fragile business as usual. With their soft yet powerful-as-prayer voices caressing each other over ghostly acoustic guitars, theremins, and distantly echoing beats, Azure Ray aren't about to lose their twin crowns as queens of slowcore, but thanks to Bachmann, they sound ready to occasionally leave the castle.
...Not only do the velvet-voiced crooners push the beats up in the mix, but the songs themselves are more upbeat and brighter than past efforts, piercing a ray of sunshine into the hearts of the gothic femme-folk duo's ballads...
3 stars out of 5 - [Fink and Taylor] use spare electronics, acoustic guitars and subtle strings to back up their arty lyrics about gentle lovers and broken hearts.
Rolling Stone (03/04/2004)
..As a departure from 2001's self-titled debut and 2002's Burn & Shiver (both released on WARM Records), as well as 2002's November EP on Saddle Creek, Hold on Love was built on a bold approach ? taking the ethereal aspects of Azure Ray's past work and mixing them with a more upbeat and enlivened technique. Still so visceral and intimate you can hear lips pulling apart and piano hammers striking, Hold on Love travels the aurally deeper road with layer upon layer of all-encompassing sound. And where love and loss dripped from each word on past albums, Hold on Love finds hope to round out their message.

This album is perfection - a perfect winter wonderland. Seriously. It doesn't matter where I am or what the weather is like, the minute I put this album on, it feels like winter time. And I mean that in the best way possible. Also, this has to be one of the most consistent albums I own, and, in times like these (the era of overwhelming mainstream music letdowns), who doesn't appreciate consistency? Plus, both of these ladies' voices are extremely beautiful and soothing. It's sad. It's happy. It's bittersweet, really - just like life.
