GINNY GI – SONGS TO DROWN SAILORS TO [SELF-RELEASED]

Remember when we all went temporarily batsh*t for exactly one sea shanty some dude made a Tik Tok about? Well, spoiler alert: some people have never gotten over their love for singing about the ocean. Also? Goth mermaids.

So, you put that all together with a (me-)hearty dash of mythology and homicide, and you get this delightful little six-song follow up to Di’s 2020 release, “Jolly Sailor Bold” and 2018’s “Ruby of the Sea”*.

Very warbly. Aims for haunting, comes damn close. Lots of reverb, lots of low foghorns and mysterious strings played from inside a sea-cave. Needs more water noises. Would be super fabulous for late-night plays. My favorites were 2 (“Wave-Soaked Maiden”) and 5 (“Come In”).

FCC: No

GMR: No

RIYL: Dead Can Dance, Eliza Carthy, Mel Parsons
