New Music Revue: Consilience’s Under Our Bed a soothing listen

July 13, 2016 by He Wei, contributing writer

Under Our Bed

Edmonton’s Consilience is the project of multi-instrumentalist Tasy Hudson, a solo musician with, among other instruments, a guitar, a synthesizer, and a loop pedal. On Under Our Bed I can hear what Hudson is trying to get across with her soft tones and gentle melodies. The addition of instruments such as piano also helps the album’s strong rhythm.

Because Under Our Bed is very soft, it’s suitable to listen to in the evening; it’s also helpful when people need to have a good rest. I listened to the album when I was tired; it helped to fully relax me.

Unfortunately, I cannot give it a full five-out-of-five mark. Although a soft voice can go a long way to make people sound mysterious, sometimes there are too many unanswered questions. For example, I don’t think the album’s title and songs feel connected.

Still, this is a powerful release from a Canadian musician worth keeping an eye on.
