The "death rattle" is more pronounced on their first EP (Strawberry Fayre / Evergreen / Halfpennies and Farthings / September Come Again), but it's present in all of her performances if you listen hard enough.
I'm an atheist & I love, love, *love* The Carousel! "A-Z" is perfect. Their earlier stuff is equally awesome.... I can't praise this band enough. I can overlook the religion; since when do pop lyrics matter anyway?
very pretty voice, but why does she make a death rattle type noise every time she takes a breath? clogged sinuses, maybe? hopefully she's gotten ahold of some Allegra or Claritin at some point in the past 20 years ― poor thing.
