Song Description

Review/Amplifier Magazine: http://amplifiermagazine.com/reviews/cds/andi_starr_cd.php Darkness, darkness, be my pillow? Portland based singer-songstress Andi Starr rekindles the femme fatale fervor of her Lilith Fair predecessors (think Juliana Hatfield, Tori Amos, Throwing Muses) on the many magical, murky, and mystical musings embedded within Leaving The White Line. Thanks to a jazz-tinged rhythm section that punctuates her breathy melodies with a swing ethos, plus the less-is-more production smarts of Larry Crane (Elliot Smith, Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney), Starr's folksy compositions sparkle though the ballads and rockers alike. The title cut, which kicks off the record, spookily hangs in the air by way of reverberating arpeggios and bleary bass motifs as the singer mournfully croons over a love lost "out there, beyond the fog." "Save Yourself," which details Starr's outsider status amongst her religious group, really hits home with an electric violin passage (rendered by Donny Wright) worthy of John Cale in his VU days. And Starr's cover of U2's "Running To Stand Still" is worthy of the VU in their Cale days. In an increasingly vapid commercial pop landscape, Starr's White Line is a gem uncovered. --Tom Semioli

Lyrics

For miles and miles I kept my eyes on the white line
For years and years I kept myself on the right side
Like you I always had the right words to say
Out there beyond the fog the shoulder drops away

leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line is the best thing I ever did

For miles and miles I kept my eyes on your white line
For hours and hours I drove to meet you beneath the pines
Like you I always clung to the right way
Out there beyond your shoulder the sun drops away

I didn't mean to hurt you
no, I didn't intend to upset you
but I think that you were searching
for something that I can no longer give
and I know that you were expecting
a life that I can no longer live

leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line
leaving the white line is the best thing I ever did
