Tara Jane O’Neil is one of those lasting 90s performers. She is lasting because she never got too big. She remained in the underground because her music, both her solo stuff and her earlier work with Rodan, is just too damn weird. O’Neil’s most recent album, A Ways Away, is full of intricate and dreamy guitar picking coupled with what i can only call melodic noise. This track below, thanks to Rollo & Grady, is a little mystical and a little Southern charm along the lines of Azure Ray. O’Neil calls Portland, OR home but is from Louisville.

O’Neil is on tour in the states soon. See dates here. She’ll be at The Market Hotel on Halloween! I saw her in that very venue last Spring, and it was breathtaking.
