Azure Ray

Although they became important figures in the Saddle Creek community of Omaha, NE, Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor made their initial mark in Athens, GA, where they formed Azure Ray in 2001. The two musicians -- both Alabama natives as well as childhood friends -- relocated to Athens after school and combined elements of folk, pop, and light electronica into their 2001 debut album. The next winter, Azure Ray issued the November EP on the Saddle Creek label, sparking a fruitful association with the label and its roster. The sophomore effort Burn and Shiver followed in 2002 and exuded a more serene soundscape, as well as slick production work from Crooked Fingers frontman Eric Bachmann. Fink and Taylor also began lending their help to other albums, from Moby's 18 to Bright Eyes' Lifted or the Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground. Meanwhile, they also served as members of Now It's Overhead, another Saddle Creek band.

A year later, Azure Ray continued their prolific pace by issuing Hold on Love. The album proved to be the duo's last release for seven years, though, and both musicians pursued solo careers in the interim. Maria Taylor put out three full-length albums and one collaborative EP (the latter recorded with her Saddle Creek friend Andy LeMaster), while Orenda Fink released a pair of solo albums, one digital EP, one album with her side project Art in Manila, and another with the short-lived pop duo O+S. Taylor and Fink returned their focus to Azure Ray in 2009, launching a brief tour that year before returning in 2010 with their fourth album, Drawing Down the Moon. In September of 2012, the band's fifth, more electronic-leaning offering As Above So Below arrived. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Say your name then kiss your hand say your crushes name pick a day then post this on 5 different songs your crush will kiss you on that day
I can not give this any more thumbs up or other kinds of recommendati o n s . It is simply lovely. Every time I hear it. Wonderful.
Yes, more of this. Fill up my cup with this sound. To the brim...
cross country journey, many landscapes, some beautiful, some broken all woven by threads that bind them to the next moment...a blink...a sigh
the journey continues in a motionless trance, fading to stars and brighter

I agree with that guy from years ago, these two definitely have a very Elliott Smith vibe to them.
I know and like A Good Start by Maria Taylor so this is good.
Rise song: very interesting musical arrangement. I observed 4 movements. How nice it would be to have an excellent video for it :)

Side note: The song by The Faint (also on Saddle Creek), Southern Belles in London Sing is about Orenda Fink. The Faint's frontman Todd is her husband.
Smooth and wonderful; I hope they will continue to produce music.
I think Awkward Ronald is correct. They NOT got bras on in that pitcher! Also, I enjoyed jbehme's take on awkward ronald's analysis. Amazing that a pretty simple smart a** joke can fly right over so many people's heads at one go.
Punching holes in pleadings, huh? Glad to see I'm not the only one that can't survive a day in the law office without Pandora and, more importantly, good music emanating from my desktop speakers.

I loved reading these comments. Almost as enjoyable as listening to Azure Ray.
simply awesome and beautiful
You missed the point of my joke entirely and took the whole silly thing seriously.
Gee Adam, if I had your intelligence , I wouldn't have to look up all those words in the dictionary.
Or am I taking you seriously?
Wonderful to listen to. Their music reminds me of the older work from Pink Floyd.
love this group. heard my first song by them watching Devil Wears Prada. i'm so glad =)

They are back 2gether....t h e y just release or are getting ready to release a new album. I just saw them perform 2gether last summer in Omaha :)

It's too bad they're no longer together. Dreampop is narcotic.
pure beauty in words
good insomnia cure. also good to work to, doesn't offend anyone. pretty!

Very nice.
Maybe their lyrics are not as powerful as say, Cat Power or Hope Sandoval, but there is a nice instrumentat i o n . I like the cello/viola. . . Looking forward to hearing more of their songs. Guess they are a bit like Natalie Walker. Maybe she's more soulful. This is a bit more whimsical than what I like.
love what I've heard so far.

looks like @jbehme below thinks very highly of himself. feels good doesn't it?

WOW, jbehme!!! You must have woken up out of bed one morning, looked up some new words in the dictionary and, then, thought: "Hey, I think I'll go on Pandora, go to the Comment section and use these words I just learned and come across as an idiot at the same time!" Well, jbehme, CONGRATULATI O N S ! A job well done! You're officially an idiot and you can pick up your trophy here anytime! (By the way, did you notice my heavy sarcasm??? If not, then, there's no hope for you or your kind.)
Sounds like Elliot Smith.
First impression: Pretty lilting harmonies and slow spacey melodies...p e r h a p s a bit heavy on the estrogen, though. Will have to hear more.
yeah, jbehme, you're an idiot. duly noted michelle9339 ;)
Oh, jbehme. You're so clever. If the clunky sarcasm didn't prove it, the big words used almost-corre c t l y are the real cincher!
Their music is pithy in its inherent depth. But of all the profound observations made of them and the depth of insight among their fans, I believe "They not got bras in that pitcher there." demonstrates the most insight and empathetic conceptual awareness and profound analysis of their poingnantly lyrical communicatio n .
They're coming back and are now on tour before working on a new album!

Azure Ray has alluring music. It's too bad that they're no longer around as a band.
:(
i have to agree with everyone below this music is beautiful
see Maria's 2007 album Lynn Teeter Flower
I know it's way out of left-field but the music in New Resolution reminds me of early Skinny Puppy + Tear Garden
http://www.a z u r e r a y m u s i c . c o m /

per their web page they are focusing on separate projects these days.
I like it...not too complex, and very lovely.
mindy.butler
addictive sounds- i had a dinner party where we let the album "the drinks we drank last night play over and over and after an hour or so when we noticed we kept it playing- we liked it that much! easy beautiful background
i haven't heardmuch from them, but so far i find them inspiring. i love their sound. great great great :)
Wow... I don't know which is funnier, the pointlessnes s of the previous comment or its outrageously poor grammar. As far as THE BAND and their music is concerned, I think they're decently good. Although, admittedly, all the songs I've yet to hear from them has been from the November album. I'm really curious how their other works are.
They not got bras on in that pitcher there.
