Paper Anniversary

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter Christine Fellows returns with Paper Anniversary, a remarkable change of pace from 2001's The Last One Standing. Where that album had been an intimate record built on Fellows' voice and piano, Paper Anniversary consists largely of Fellows' own tape loops and found-sound samples, which Fellows layers in ever-shifting combinations underneath her electronic and acoustic keyboards, accordion, and percussion.
