Recorded live-in-studio, Jane Furie’s work has an artsy, dramatic, downtempo undercurrent running throughout, full of cello and organ, that we like, and her handsome voice (reminiscent of Florence Welch) tops it all off nicely. Furie muses on a dysfunctional relationship in “My Love,” a song that’s structured in movements, all of it graced by a wonderful vocal hum.  The song “Sculptor” (“my sculptor is a god”) has some fast, rhythmic guitar work and a very effective contribution by a chorale of backup voices. Dramatic piano, a prominent snare-drum roll, and a walking bassline contribute to the overall jazz-funk flavor of ”Gnawed,” all of it topped off by a series of handclaps. Furie is on to something and we urge her to keep working.
