Effects pedal of the day: TC Electronic June 60 chorus – Roland synth inspired but also great for Leslie rotary speaker guitar sounds
One chorus is slow and expansive while the other is a little faster and wobblier but combined together they sort of dance around each other which can sound a bit like a rotating Leslie speaker.
Played with dreamy abandon, Chained To A Woman slowly reveals its character – a strong voice dancing around her own choir, somehow both melancholy and triumphant in the same beguiling passage.
This is an album of ideas. Sometimes it glides between them; sometimes it leaps. One thing remains constant, however – the urge to explore.
