***Disturbing the Air is a record of new songs from AZITA, featuring piano and vocals. For these songs, only the piano proved delicate and flexible enough to hold Azita as she sang of unsaid moments, testing the words she heard that no one else dared to say. Even with a minimal pallete, these performances are a brooding, commanding lot. Disturbing the Air considers the darkness that comes over a relationship in imbalance; vacated by one party, leaving the other in a faded, ghostly state. For Azita, this is a state of non-being. It means matching oneself to the void, a terrifying encounter. For we who listen, it means that we compare this album to no other—not even records that share its piano-and-vocal arrangement. Disturbing the Air is an expression; a singular statement, made more of necessity than desire. Two and a half years have passed since How Will You? was released. Disturbing the Air emerges as a shadow side to that album, a glowing opacity emanating from within. The music and lyrics are rich and wild at times, a mere whisper at others. (STREET DATE - 9/20/2011)
