Kendra Smith - Iridescence 31

Smith was a member of The Dream Syndicate and Opal. In 1995 she released her album Five Ways of Disappearing. After two shows to promote it, she promptly disappeared. America's big enough that you can still do that, it seems.

Iridescence 31 comes from her previous release, The Guild Of Temporal Adventurers. Wasn't that a Michael Moorcock thing? Jerry Cornelius and Una Persson fomenting anarchy and revolution up and down the timeline, right? Either way, this is far from the needlegun aesthetic you might expect from the name, it's a simple pump organ melody, preciously quiet. A tranquil portrait, a place to retreat.
