SPOTIFY REVIEW: Ashley Eriksson “Colours” (K Records)

             A member of the band LAKE, Ashley Eriksson decided that not only should there be a new album from the band she is a part of in this, The Year of Music, but that she should also put out a solo album as well.

            On paper, this might seem a bit overwhelming in the sense of too much Ashley Eriksson at once, but the reality of it is that it’s just a lot of good music so it ends up working out quite well actually.

            On this album, Eriksson has the musical qualities of Broken Bells laced with sort of Cranberries vocals.  In some ways, it is a stripped down version of LAKE.  In some ways, it’s like LAKE without the male vocals.  But however you slice it, it’s good pie.
