Blackhart and Strangelove have this eerie bewitching quality about them; as if you are alone in a drafty old theatre, walking room to room, when an otherworldly voice seems to shatter the air and expectations in one breath, in one swoop. Tessa Black’s extraordinary vocal range is the centerpiece here, no arguments about that. Dashes of cabaret, a bit of torch, a flash of saloon…it’s all yummy, mummy. Sometimes vaguely menacing, but with enough frills and fishnet, horns and piano to beckon you to come closer, Don’t Set Yourself on Fire is a delightful hint of what should be a fascinating, and hopefully longterm artistic endeavor. Fans of PJ Harvey, Spiegeltent and Beth Ditto should lap this one right up. –Carrie Alison
