Sounding something akin to Hot Topic apparel invading quaint, conservative, southern communities, Orenda Fink has always blurred the thick line separating dark, gothic music from more light hearted, folkiness. On her latest album, Ask the Night, expect more of the same. By that we mean tender vocals grazing up against the sounds of guitar, banjo, accordion, violin, bass, and pump organ for a 10 song set that is intriguingly mysterious.

Fink was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, and her Southern roots are undeniably displayed on this, her sophomore album. Ask the Night was mainly recorded in the basement of Fink's former home in Nebraska, and features a plenty of collaborators, including producers Stephen Bartolomei and Andy LeMaster, Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse, and Dan McCarthy of McCarthy Trenching. To add to this plethora of artists, the album will also feature four additional collaborations with artist and poet, Chris Lawson.

We can confidently stake our claim that Ask the Night will surpass Fink's debut album, The Invisible Ones, both in creative scope, and (hopefully) critical success. I suppose that's just what gathering a handful of artists and jamming them in a basement will do. Ask the Night will be released via Saddle Records on October 6th, 2009. - Lonnie Nemiroff
