Darling Violetta – Smaller God (2003)

The bittersweet age of the year draws nigh, and so I offer you this song, a reminder of a time long gone, with diaphanous tendrils weaved into our accelerated present. Chances are you’ve enjoyed, or at least heard about Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and/or Angel, Joss Whedon’s startup shows, back when the Millennium was a big deal. Or perhaps you’ve played the formidable Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines video-game, a true cult classic. Then you might have heard some of Darling Violetta’s songs, including “Smaller God”. If not, enjoy this first contact. It reminds me of Alanis Morissette in her “Jagged Little Pill” period (with vastly inferior lyrics, but so what?), and that’s no small praise as far as I’m concerned. A song like the autumn tide.
