ElMay is the solo project of Lara Meyerratken, the keyboardist and singer who collaborates with seemingly every other artist these days, including Ben Lee and Crooked Fingers. Her website won't lead you anywhere - no bio, pictures, or discography, but you will find three pretty songs from her demo that you can stream and then drag out of your temporary internet files. And then there's this track that starts like an old movie or radio program, and quickly gives way to a sincere song about the process of loss. Okay, the lyrics are a little too sincere for my taste, but there's something about her voice that lulls me and want to follow her into a dark forest.
