The Consultants


Formed in Brooklyn in 2003, The Consultants were Marisha Chinsky, Brett Whitmoyer, and Mike Hollitscher. Their music is beautifully layered and cinematic, while the lyrics are a neurotic cocktail of hope and discontent. Chinsky sings and writes most of the words, and they are often windows into a compelling world where self-confidence and self-doubt are perpetually vying for the upper hand. In The Mark, for example, she sings “Staring at your fingers - the same stale place you took yourself, so many nights ago. Read more on Last.fm

I’ve been here before. The sign is pointed to the door. I think I should go. It’s so hard in winter - to love the things you’re giving up.

At 25 you grow”. Chinsky’s frail voice is so convincing, that the listener has no choice but to share her emotional lifeboat as it bobs precariously on the roiling sea of Whitmoyer’s brittle guitar and Hollitscher’s escape velocity bass. Hollow-Bodied Evening sees Chinsky proving her mettle as a lead player, as she laces the intro with a dirty, yet breathtakingly melodic run of notes over Whitmoyer’s frighteningly simple, yet highly effective rhythm hook. Snow Fell (It’s Night) is a shimmering confection of contrapuntal melodies, while listening to Contents of My Head is akin to lying on the hood of a car at the foot of a runway while commercial airliners take off over your head.

The album closes with the throbbing pulse of Talking to No One, which once again, finds our heroine a bit confused by the often opposing demands of head and heart. Lines such as “I hope you don’t call, but I want you to”, swim through the heavy water of hyper-distorted guitars and a tribal rhythm section that is a bit reminiscent of Ride’s best moments. Work From Home is an album that will provide essential mix-tape material for years to come. It was released in May 2005 by Shelflife Records. In Autumn of 2005, the band called it quits and made their separate musical ways, however remaining friends.

Marisha now perfoms in Corita, and formerly in Polar Bear Parade. Brett, Mike, Jed and Tris continue to play in My Teenage Stride. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
