Maxine Funke - Seance (Cassette Edition)
New Zealand's Maxine Funke crafts humble, softly sung folksongs with acoustic guitar and her distinctive voice. Assertive confessionals that hide the deep love and hurt that graces this collection of songs. "Lucky Penny" is an exuberant, catchy song that very well may be the centerpiece with it's descending rhythmic hook, though the second track in, "Quiet Shore," is a seven-minute reverie that expands Funke into longform songcrafting. Recommended if you like Claire Rousay, World Standard or Ana Roxane.
