Five Ways of Disappearing (1995)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Kendra Smith

If Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett had moved to Northern California, he might have made an album like the solo debut from Kendra Smith (Dream Syndicate, Opal) Five Ways of Disappearing. Spare and haunting, the eerie keyboards and varied guitar textures drape the songs' slow tempos and rustic melodies, while Smith's cool vocals deliver elusive, psychedelic lyrics. B+
