There's nothing quite like a highly anticipated album debut. The release of Durham-based Erie Choir's first full-length has generated a lot of excitement both locally and from points far and wide. But don't be scared off by the hype. "Slighter Awake" is a considerable achievement. Subtly ambitious, it draws on a diverse list of musical touchstones, fusing the bright familiarity of classic rock with the grit of Americana, the dreamy aspects of psychedelic folk with pop sensibilities derived from New Wave, all tied together in a surprisingly intelligent, intimate and affecting package, deserving of all the praise it has (and inevitably will) receive.
