ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Switchyard began as an all-female, disco cover band in Las Vegas.

Drummer Rachel Bellinsky and guitarist Gina Fiore met while both searching for a musical project that would pay the bills. They would go on to play in casinos and nightclubs throughout Las Vegas for two years, entertaining people with countless renditions of "Hot Stuff" and "Kung Fu Fighting."

Then one day, after nearly dying of heat stroke during a summer yard party, Rachel decided she'd rather be singing and writing her own music. So she wrote some songs, recruited Gina and started recording. The end result is 'The Secret Life of Spiders', and it sounds nothing like Donna Summer.

'The Secret Life of Spiders' is an honest collection of dark, introspective songs, written in bed. They are a testament to losing things, looking for things, finding things, ruining things and ultimately deciding that "you might as well be brave" in the face of all these things. Melancholic and full of expectancy, it is the sound of waiting endlessly on a train, destination unknown.

Itsy Bitsy Spider Packs A Punch
This is an exceptionally well-written and well-played CD. Each song takes a turn at being my favorite, yet fits in so well in context that it is a pleasure to hit repeat at the end of the disc. A word of warning- this CD contains songs of honesty and self-discovery, so it packs an emotional punch. Albeit, one that is wrapped in velvet and leaves you wanting more.

Skilled songwriting
In The Secret Life of Spiders, it's the music that get's your attention, but it's the profound and pithy lyrics that keep it. While Ms. Bellinsky is an original, her music would appeal to fans of Fiona Apple, Laura Veirs, Angelo Badalamenti, et al., and to anyone who appreciates a solid groove or a finely crafted lyric. This is music that hits you in the groin and the head simultaneously.

What I meant to say was...
In The Secret Life of Spiders, it's the music that get's your attention, but it's the profound and pithy lyrics that keep it. While Bellinsky is an original, her music would appeal to fans of Fiona Apple, Laura Veirs, Angelo Badalamenti, et al., or to anyone who appreciates a solid groove or a finely crafted lyric. This is music that hits you on an emotional, gut level, while simultaneously surprising you with fresh intellectual/philosophical insights.

Will this review cause blindness?
If you write reviews for yourself, will you ultimately go blind, become insane, or grow hair on your palms? I hope not.
The Secret Life of Spiders - buy it, listen to it, love it, but by all means do not use it as a coaster.
