Great Aunt Ida â€” How They Fly
Like Ida Nilsen needs anymore stalkers. I was at the Railway the other night and there was a whole legion of folks just a little too into it. They sat cross-legged on the floor with chins pointed towards her keyboard in dream-like wonder as she moved through a set made up of songs which appear on Great Aunt Idaâ€™s newest release, How They Fly. So I feel like I should warn you before you go and listen to this thing. The 12 tracks meander through a guest list of musicians that have long since fallen under her spell. The songs are so spacious you just might get the impression that thereâ€™s room for you in all that loveliness. And maybe there is, but youâ€™re not the only one that feels this way. Just donâ€™t turn into a weirdo.
