Kendra Smith is probably best known as a founding member of the Dream Syndicate and as the voice behind Opal. In 1992, five years after the release Opal's last album, a cryptically packaged 10" EP of mysteriously beautiful songs called Kendra Smith Presents The Guild of Temporal Adventurers seemed to magically appear and quickly disappear from a select few record stores. A better distributed full length on 4AD, the appropriately titled Five Ways of Disappearing, followed in 1995. Since that release, to my knowledge, there has been no new music from Kendra Smith, and that's a shame. It's also a shame that both Opal albums and this EP are out-of-print and difficult to find.
"Wheel of the Law" is one of my favorite songs from the 1992 EP. Jonah Corey sings on this cut with Kendra.
