ē Shame, the debut full-length album from Rachel Baiman, is a work of striking importance from a fresh voice that is bound to reach many ears in the years to come. On the albumís ten tracks, Baiman commands attention with songwriting prowess and a depth of presence well beyond her 27 years. The album is a thought-provoking exploration on life as a female in America, with a strong lyrical focus on social justice issues. Despite the serious subject matter, the sound of the album remains light and centers around groove-based, largely acoustic instrumentation. Produced by Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange, the lush and varied musical texture heard on Shame is a departure from Baimanís previous stripped-down duo work with 10 String Symphony. Baimanís vocals are arresting throughout; simultaneously rich and subdued, her husky tone and unaffected delivery pair beautifully with the recordís stew of folk, alt country, and gospel sounds.
Reviews For Shame
fRoots - Cara Gibney
Proudly political, contrasting its upbeat, whimsicle melody with words on the harsh realities.
De Krenten uit de Pop - Erwin Zijleman
A remarkably strong second album.
