Don't be put off by the title of the first track, "Janitor Of Lunacy". It is not a horrorcore metal track, but rather a dense, Celtic-sounding dirge. Is this really the Nico you remember from the Velvet Underground? Nico is the German-born model/actress who became part of the Warhol Crowd and a vocalist on the Velvets' first album. She soon left the band and ventured out on her own as an avant-garde soloist. DESERTSHORE, produced by John Cale, is highly atmospheric music making, with crashing percussion and droning harmonium. Nico's decisive vocals wail and wind through an ambient adventure of obscure self-penned songs. "Afraid", gracefully backed by acoustic piano is by far the most accessible. There's a dry timbre to her vocals which is reminiscent of Marianne Faithfull, but DESERTSHORE is more performance-oriented, set in a more textured setting. Nico's influence might be more wide-ranging than one might think; it sounds like many contemporary female rockers have some of her solo records next to well-worn copies of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO in their collections. And while the sound of this 1970 album is an acquired taste, it is a sound that has become increasingly popular in contemporary recordings by new-folk, Celtic, and New Age artists.
