In the Ether—Fever Queen
In the Ether is the second full-length album by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eleanor Rose Lee. This record is ambitious and compositional in a low-key sort of way. Foggy and romantic, each song weaves with the next in a mysterious and ever-shifting nocturnal mood—in turns misty-eyed, intimate, and strange. Hear Eleanor croon the tale of an enigmatic drifter on “Petey”; melt to the acerbic doo-wop drama of “Molding”; feel the aquatic bubblegum vibes of “Maybe to Baby”; drop into the fairy-world pulse of “Afterglow"; find yourself amidst unexpected limelight flourishes on "For Us."
As for the title? Eleanor says: "I named it In the Ether as it seemed a place that exists only in the far off chambers of my imagination and other intangible realms. One of the songs I wrote in my sleep and when I woke up I quickly recorded all I could remember of it, so it felt like a lot of ideas being sent to me from different places in space / time (a full time job!)"
In the Ether is pure magic of the hazy type. Throw this beautiful translucent purple record on your deck and drift into an off-kilter dreamworld.
