Following the critical acclaim of Revolver: A New Spin-one of the Village Voice's "Top Ten Recordings of 2000"-the celebrated and ever-eclectic singer Ann Dyer returns with When I Close My Eyes, her debut release on Sunnyside Records. As its title suggests, the new disc finds Dyer turning inward, leaving behind the familiar ground of the Beatles' music to wade into a darker, more enigmatic space-an ocean of quiet longing where the heart finds solace in its own insistent pulse. With a spare sonic palette of vocals, acoustic bass, and drums, Dyer achieves her most intimate and subtly moving work to date.
