Juanita Stein's second solo album arrives less than a year after her first, 'America', saw the
former Howling Bells front-woman exploring the iconography and cultural landscapes of a
country that had always fascinated her from afar. Yet, while 'Until The Lights Fade' is cut
from the same musical cloth as its predecessor - the crepuscular twang of bar-room
guitars, the keening romanticism of its melodies, the sparseness and simplicity of its
arrangements - the album's ten songs are concerned with thoughts, feelings, stories and
characters rooted far closer to home.
