Ella Blame's music sounds like a 21st-century version of Pink Floyd fronted by a 21st-century mixture of Kate Bush, Tori Amos, and Björk.
Ella is collaborating with several electronic musicians and multi-instrumentalists from around the world (USA, Canada, Japan, India, and Germany), especially Michael D. Temple and Shinji Imai a.k.a. “mode complex”. Together, they create partially revolutionary music of genres Psychedelic Pop, Psychedelic Dance, Symphonic Outer Space Music, and Ethereal/Ambient.
Debut CD "Ineffable Desire"
This CD should have a warning label: "May induce a state of altered consciousness with distorted perceptions of space and time. Do not drive or operate machinery while listening to this music." Ella Blame's Ineffable Desire grabs you by the synapses and delivers an endless stream of audio stimuli that completely dominate your attention. This is music you don't simply listen to - you experience it... Ella Blame is innovative, perhaps ahead of their time. But the day will come when this music is the pop music of a new generation, and Ineffable Desire will likely be held up as the seminal album of the genre. -- Kenny Hart, http://www.Indie-Music.com
Then, in the frenetic "Thought Control" and the experimental "Another Side," both with music by guest collaborator Shinji Imai, Blame shows off the baritone end of her huge range, along with her hisses and moans and piercing high notes. She unveils a fluttery soprano for the spooky, deceptively simple ballad "I Can't Sleep." In fact, it wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration to say that Blame's voice is to a normal person's voice as Robert Patrick's shape-shifting Terminator was to the stolidly anthropomorphic Schwartzenegger model ... --Jon Sobel, http://www.Blogcritics.org
