Evi Vine’s “The Musical Boxtleg”: live album review

Evi Vine included this bootleg live CD as a bonus extra when she shipped me the albums I’d ordered. It’s a fantastic listen after hearing her first two spacious moody ethereal darkwave records, adding so much more depth and context to her music. The performance sounds so direct and intimate, and the live versions really heighten the intensity, demonstrating how much emotional openness and vulnerability Evi brings to each song. These arrangements feel a touch longer and dronier, leaning into a kind of stoner doom goth vibe that also draws on organic math rock a-la early Mogwai. The blend is effective, with what sounds like a minimal set of instruments producing quite a sonic landscape.
