about

The Singularity Point is best described as a point where old models must be discarded to make way for a new reality. I do believe the process has begun.


Artist: Carrie Armitage
Album: The Singularity Point


The first thing that jumps out about this album is the vocals. They really call to mind Tori Amos or Kate Bush. Of course, when Tori Amos first emerged she was often compared to Kate Bush as they had some similarities in their vocal performances, so that commonality is logical. The music here is more purely progressive rock oriented than Amos’ work, but the vocals are more daring than Bush’s.

‘ … a real thrill ride of an album.’

Review by G. W. Hill
Rating: 4.5 stars (out of 5)

Canadian Carrie Armitage’s The Singularity Point is a peculiar album. It mixes a little bit of ambient, new age, mild jazz, and world music together, creating a well-made package of different musical flavors. The album isn’t your typical mishmash of earthy, eco-green, Kumbaya stuff, but instead unravels with upbeat rhythms, sparkling vocals, and great instrumental work…far from the stereotypical new age sound.

The music spirals and ascends, dips and soars, somewhat like “listening” to a kaleidoscope. Whatever it is, it works. The sound is crisp, the beats are felt, and psychedelic abstractness is present from start to finish. Armitage does a great job at sounding “far out” without sounding pretentious, and the musical trip is enjoyable and amusing.

The Singularity Point is a new, “new age” type album, minus all of the traditional, new age trademarks. The grooves are deep, the rhythms are catchy, and the overall unperturbed, tranquil affect won’t lull you to sleep, but it will make you close your eyes and dream a bit.
