Crystal Myslajek has been a steady force in the Minneapolis underground music community for years, notably in the groups IE and Brute Heart. "Cove" is her first truly solo endeavor, wherein she composed and played each element. The music is comprised of delicate interlocking piano cycles, layered vocals, uncluttered synthesizer pads and subtle melodic hooks. "Cove" was conceived over a year and a half, recorded at home and more formally on a grand piano. The entire creative process coincided with the birth of her second child. The resulting music is as beautiful, soulful and intimate as all that connotes.

Very pleasant music that draws me in. I hear a kind of charm in many of Les' compositions (here and in his "Invisible Cities" album) -- along with quiet mysteries that don't need to be solved -- just enjoyed. Brian Flaherty
