  • Through the Devil Softly is the second studio album from Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions. Recorded over a two-year period between 2007 and 2009 in Northern California and Ireland, the album was released by Nettwerk on 28 September 2009 (see 2009 in music) - eight years after the release of their previous studio album, Bavarian Fruit Bread. The set won critical acclaim for its dark and complex production, with the band employing unorthodox techniques such as sudden and abrupt time signature shifts, coupled with frequent use of "irrational" measure lengths. The production also utilized the use of intricate musical arrangements, with several songs on the album, such as "Sets the Blaze", "Thinking Like That", "Trouble" and "Blue Bird", featuring no discernible choruses. A cover of the Syd Barrett track "Golden Hair", from his 1970 album The Madcap Laughs, was released with the March 2010 issue of Mojo magazine. Originally an acoustic song set to the words of James Joyce's poem "Lean Out of the Window", the track was radically altered and rearranged into a psychedelic rock piece, extending the originals duration from under two-minutes to over 6:30. On August 10, 2010, the song was released as a non-album single, backed with the b-side "Suddenly Beside You." The track served as the closing encore for every Warm Inventions show since its release.

  • Album closer "Satellite," frequently lauded in reviews. NME's Emily Mackey commented the track "sounds like Billie Holiday's final radio transmission to troubled earthlings from her home beyond the stars." (en)
