    The debut EP from HTDA is generally an enjoyable, though brief, listen for the duration of it's six tracks; from the almost sinister sounding opening track (The Space In Between) to the mournful piano at the conclusion of A Drowning. Available as a free download or vinyl from the official website or in CD form it marks an interesting if not entirely new direction for Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails fame, as he collaborates with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and Atticus Ross. Musically it comes across sounding very similar to recent NIN releases like Year Zero and The Slip. If your not familiar with NIN then you'll find HTDA is laced with layers of heavily distorted exotic synth, guitar, and rhythmic percussion. Interestingly though the vocals and lyrics are all written and performed by Mariqueen which blankets the NIN sound with a smokey air. Basically if you've enjoyed recent NIN releases then you will likely enjoy this as it's more of the same but with female vocals. Full Review »
