Amun Ra
A Thousand Ticking Clocks
Dead Inside Entertainment

Navigating the highways and byways of jazz-rock, synth-pop, and trip-hop, Boston-based Amun Ra’s second album, A Thousand Ticking Clocks, offers eleven rather eclectic tracks in which Emily Shirley’s ethereal vocals float casually above the band’s rhythm and melodies.  It’s quite jazzy but accessible—think Beth Orton, but sunnier.

A number of tunes on A Thousand Ticking Clocks are laden with synthesizer parts courtesy of Neil Larson, and meld an 80’s pop sound with more sophisticated jazzier elements. And songs like “Unwind” infuse Misha Rutman’s guitar rhythms and world music beats. The album remains strong from start to finish, and holds up well upon repeated listens. 

Favorite Track: Track 3, “Lifeboat”
