SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Orenda Fink, Privatclub, 8pm
Though she’s perhaps best known for her work as one half of indie dream pop band Azure Ray, Orenda Fink is also an established solo artist, having released three albums and one EP since 2005. Her most recent album, and the first in five years, was last year’s Blue Dream.
The trademark lush layers and minimal ethereal sounds of Azure Ray are present on Blue Dream, but it’s still very much a Fink album, with a haunting, darker edge that seems to be searching as it winds along. Fink’s husband, Todd Fink of the The Faint, and musician Ben Brodin both take credit as producers on the album, making it very much a Saddle Creek Records affair. Natalye Childress
