Sarah Schonert ultimately creative electronics Sarah Schonert – PENGUIN PARTY:  With all my experience in the experimental zone, as well as the amount of music I listen to on a daily basis, I can tell you (without qualification) that if you’re looking for a refreshing new approach in your listening, you’re going to truly enjoy pieces like the 4:48 “NonCrystalline” (the links should work by the time you read this – the album releases on the 8th of December, 2017)… a nice touch on her piano, and she uses her “duet” vocal to keep the tune swaying and full of life… I totally dug this one!

You’ll hear some excellent looping sounds on “I Can’t Think Straight“, and she uses her vocals and instruments to create symphony-like washes that will keep your ears intrigued… long after you’ve listened to the tune, it will be haunting your ears.

Sarah is joined by bassist Brett David on “Queen of Panels“, and they jam right on down with this tune… one note, though… be sure you listen to this (at least for your first sitting) with your headphones on… it’s the kind of music that demands full attention from your aural appendages… full of life and the spirit of living!

This is one busy lady, too… she’s produced seven albums out of her home studio, and does acrylic painting and electrical engineering as well… in my mind, though, it’s her music that makes her talent shine so brilliantly… just listen to the lively opener, “Astound Me“, to get a sense of her inherent multi-instrumentalist skills.

There are a total of thirteen songs on this release, so it took a third listen (all the way through the album) to choose my personal favorite… there’s no question that it’s the closer, “Get Thee to a Nunnery“, that wins it hands-down… for these old ears, it’s the most powerful track… “majestic” is the keyword that best fits here…

I give Sarah a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98… I’m looking forward to hearing much more from her!  Get more information at Sarah’s website.              Rotcod Zzaj
