    Newby's solo return after a four-year absence, Sirens is an immersive collection of ambient and environment electro-acoustic music with strong though restrained Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian influences. Newby intertwines a number of wordless vocal sources with drones, sparse percussion, and contributions on harp, rebab, bull fiddle, and didgeridoo from an assembly of guest artists. A strong, consistent album. ~ Sean Cooper

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (7/97, p.64) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...Newby...seduces the listener with the gongs and chimes of gamelan orchestra and the plaintive sound of the suling flute....exotic, darkly pretty..."
