About That Bass: TAL WILKENFELD – “Fistful Of Glass” (Love Remains LP)
Tal Wilkenfeld – ‘Love Remains’ is available now @ iTunes.
by Walter Price
With a history steeped in working alongside legendary names like Todd Rundgren, Trevor Rabin, and Jeff Beck, you’d expect go-to bassist Tal Wilkenfeld’s new solo album to be rich in artistic bass-heavy concoctions only understood by the most educated of musicians. And, yes, her bass wizardry is definitely a focused force. But what the album ‘Love Remains’ is truly about is a smorgasbord of thoughts, soundscapes, and inspirations.
Moments of singer-songwriter, prog, blues, and alternative living in a surprisingly cohesive universe. A collection further strengthened by Wilkenfeld’s delicately powerful voice. A delivery best experienced on tracks “Pieces of Me”, opener “Corner Painter”, “Haunted Love”, and the dynamic “Fistful Of Glass”.
“Fistful Of Glass”, a 90s-era alt radio throwback reminiscent of something you’d associate with works by Liz Phair or Juliana Hatfield. A song that adds another delicious ingredient to the multilayered brilliance that is ‘Love Remains’. So, spoiler alert, if you’re looking for an album that’s only about that bass, you will be pleasantly disappointed.
