More than a decade after her last solo release, Mariska Baars graces us with a new mini-lp. Her
sound is as minimal and spartan as her amount of output. The songs are still slow, stripped-down and quiet, made with an overwhelming love for tone and sound, focussed entirely on guitar and vocals. They’re definitely rooted in the folktradition, but at the same time very ‘ambient’, in the true sense of the word.
‘Tell from the grass’ is an extremely natural sounding record. Baars is a master in letting sounds resonate and explore their own path. As if she is more interested in conducting the songs in a certain direction than pushing them in a specific shape. To reach her goal, Baars works very restrained: she never uses a single note when it’s not fully required. The fact that the record still sounds so spontaneous makes it so unique: she does it so effortless that no one else really comes close to her approach. Utterly mesmerizing.
