Dane Waters: Radiate the Finite

Dane Waters has had a prolific year. Hot on the heels of Sand In Your Mind — the recent release by the Waters-fronted band softcheque — she returns with a new solo record, Radiate the Infinite, a title that proves revealing with even a cursory listen. It would be disingenuous to suggest that anything could happen here, but Waters has a broad tonal palate, exemplified by her use of vocals as an ambient instrument. Processed as a whole, the music skews, more often than not, melancholic — there is a darkness in Waters’ music that feels in some way entirely transcendent.
