Asleep in the Well CD (2002)
Midnight roams. Dirty cities. Insomniac maniacs. Street vendor roses. Corner dwellers. Secret passageways. Glory. Heroes in stereo. Shanty towns. Night trains. Real eyes. Half wishes.
This is Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Faith Kleppinger's debut solo album, "Asleep In The Well" --a stripped-down, woozy, late-night drift through softly-sung stories.
"Asleep" opens on a hazy morning, Kleppinger's ethereal, somewhat raspy voice and hypnotic guitar rhythms floating over loose backing instruments on the dreamscape that is "City 3" - then sheds the accompaniment on the second track, "Intensified," down to just voice and guitar. It's a musical and emotional pattern Kleppinger continues throughout the album, slowly weaving instruments in and out: Raindrop piano notes on "Daytime." The introduction of a male voice on the lullaby duet "Double Negative." Dirty guitar on the battle hymn "Glory/High." Unique lyrical observances and a dreamy sense of melody are the pillars of Kleppinger's songwriting. "Asleep In The Well" is a portrait of this talent loose and in the raw. Enjoy.
"You tell time to go to hell/You'll meet it there."- "City 3," Asleep In The Well
