Ten Small Paces

Editorial Reviews

Continuing a tradition established on their previous album, I Know About You, Ida's ranks swell to include another new member on Ten Small Paces -- bassist Karla Schickele, who also authors two of the recording's finest moments, "Fallen Arrow" and "Poor Dumb Bird." Continuing another Ida tradition, the record is even better than the one which preceded it: Ten Small Paces is unspeakably beautiful, a mesmerizing collection of songs marked by a rare intelligence and poignancy.
