Melaena Cadiz is a Kalamazoo, Michigan native currently taking refuge in Brooklyn and its amazingly large alt.country/folk music scene. Late last year she released Rattle The Windows, an album that dropped so quietly that even the king of the unheralded gems, songs:illinois, has no mention of the album. Well, it’s time for ninebullets to join slowcoustic in an effort to shine a light on this truly fantastic, albeit short, album.
Rattle The Windows is a collection of 8 original tracks which immediately brings the calm, bordering on melancholy coupling of music and vocal stylings of Alela Diane to mind. Hell, sometimes her delivery is even similar to Ms. Diane. I’m not trying to imply that she’s an Alela Diane clone, just trying to draw on someone y’all might be familiar with.
Be sure to check out Rattle The Windows, because even though it only checks in at 27 minutes, they’re 27 minutes of Essential Listening.
