Alternate Take: New Progressive Rockers Starless and Bible Black

Starless and Bible Black take their name from a 1974 Crimson album. But this British quintet cast their own haunting net on their second album, Shape of the Shape (Locust), from smoky electronics and spectral-country guitar to English acid folk. Singer Hélène Gautier channels Sandy Denny as a Raymond Chandler femme fatale in "Radio Blues" and hovers through "Country Heir" like a blues-angel sister of Joni Mitchell.
