The Feather e.p.

1998, cd, no label

"Skokie's Reality Scare have lingered on the fringes of the local dark-ambient scene for years, fronted by a revolving cast of usually female media poets and hgh-tech performers. Their current diva, Mary Chase, is the best yet; on the band's recent The Feather e.p. (which includes a promising cover of the Legendary Pink Dots' "Sleeso"), she sounds like a meaner, leaner Lisa Gerrard or a more soulful Siouxsie ..." --Monica Kendrick, Chicago Reader
