Library Journal Review

DEBUT A music blogger discovers a remarkable new track by an unknown band, Beautiful Remorse. It's more than hypnotic, literally entrancing the listener for hours. And it's only the first track from their new album. As Beautiful Remorse drops a track a day on Bandcamp for ten days straight, and the narrator joins them on tour, it becomes clear that something strange is going on. Each new song has a more powerful and destructive effect on those who hear it. Remorse's lead singer Airee Macpherson is aiming this album at the world like a loaded gun, for a bizarre purpose of her own. Playwright Moore puts together a fast-paced tale of an indie music scene and occult sf weirdness that doesn't lose momentum despite its rather frenzied conclusion. Its music-based supernatural elements are reminiscent of a 21st-century Ballad of Black Tom, but at a faster tempo. VERDICT This debut novella is a lean, quick read with no fat. The clever, exciting story mixes weird fiction with an engaging and mysterious plot.-Jason Puckett, Georgia State Univ. Lib, Atlanta © Copyright 2019.
