Please take a look and offer your input. Constructive criticism is welcome.

Elegant and minimal is always tasty but i am not getting any feel for the style of music and i think that may be a problem.
However some of it seems incomplete or unrefined - particularly the track listings and appearance dates.
Also why is there a seemingly random switch to a serif type for some of it?

I thnk you can still be simple and type-driven while bringing in a simple artistic or photographic element for the background. That might allow you to represent the type of music a little better. The drawn lines on the homepage (are they light beams? not sure) are a little too abstract to mean anything to me.

I definitely second Will insofar as no style being conveyed. When it comes to music, you need an emotional connection. You need to show us what this woman looks like from the get-go because humans relate to faces and bodies. That is my constructive criticism, at least.
