Amy Susan Wallace’s aka Space Memory Effect debut album, “One Thing More,” is a bittersweet dose of musical nostalgia that speaks to both the lovestruck and the lovelorn. Amy skillfully weaves together rich piano compositions and diverse instrumental arrangements, paying tribute to the nonconformist artists that helped her transcend her own young adult struggles. The tracks in “Space Memory Effect” echo the cherished sounds of early R.E.M., Replacements, and 10,000 Maniacs, serving as a spiritual reckoning with feeling disconnected from one’s time and place while seeking a path away from the current nihilistic loneliness.
Through her vulnerable storytelling, Amy lovingly bears witness to our detachment from the ideals that once shaped us in our youth, enticing us to revisit the flame of those ideals that still burn within us. Whether you’ve experienced feelings of inadequacy, abandonment, or disconnection from the present moment, Amy’s wistful ballads will deeply resonate with you.
