Review Text 4 tracks, 12 minutes. Paradise Island is the alter ego of Jenny Hoyston from no wave group Erase Errata, Subtonix and California Lightning. Limited edition session recorded in 2005, treading the tightrope between austere electro chanteuse to pop sensation via sensitive balladeer.Paradise Island is Jenny's solo project, giving her the opportunity to go wild and explore new ideas, none more than with this release. Her music is an amazing sound-clash of genres from sensitive guitar balladry to fractured electronic noise pop, all completely littered with inferences to Jenny's other musical passions: gospel, bluegrass, punk and country. This 4-song EP of stammering guitar, drum machine and dark vocal pop songs about life, love, loss and cycling, including an ingenious cover version of the Grateful Dead's 'Terrapin Station'? Truckin ace! All the songs were recorded live and overflow with the vitality and spontaneity Jenny's live performances have become infamous for.
