Be Mine

Be Mine Be Mine Annie Lewandowski is powerdove. Though she collaborates with other musicians, the resounding heart of powerdove will always be Lewandowski's sparse, haunting vocals and lilting parlor guitar. With influences ranging from Nico and Leonard Cohen to the drone sounds of Sunn O)), her music will warm the hearts of fans of experimental folk. Be Mine was recorded in the Mills College Concert Hall in San Francisco on February 14th, 2009, by Deerhoof's John Dieterich and the resulting twelve songs gracefully sway from ethereal, sun-dappled numbers to eerie, creaking ballads all the while communicating Lewandowski's words like a beam of light.Theses songs, originally written to be performed solo, have been transformed in the studio with the primary help of Alex Vittum and Jason Hoopes. From the original delicate arrangements for voice and parlor guitar, a trio was born. With his sublime sensitivity as an upright bass player, Jason brought depth and gravity. And with his magical and vast array of percussive objects, Alex wove an ethereal thread from song to song. When you hear the warmth of Hoopes upright bass setting the tone of "Resting Place" or Vittum's sparse but well-placed percussion on the title track, you'll be enveloped with the magic that these three felt in the studio. "Be Mine" could easily be a 60's girl-group love song stripped to it's bare essence, plainly asking for the warmth of affection. Her persistent, yet gently, picked guitar allows her breathy voice to shine on "Birdsong". Elsewhere, songs are gently accented with the spare sounds of glockenspiel, trombone and flute.
