“‘You Won’t Remember This’ sounds like it should belong on a Dirty Projectors or Fleet Foxes album, all languid acoustic guitars, yearning vocals from Rodriguez and haunting, elegiac harmonies from Kelly. Around the halfway mark the track suddenly pivots into a cloud of exultant wordless vocals, a jubilant beat and sounds that seem to soar gracefully skyward. On the flip, the instrumental ‘World Map’ is all low-slung bass, wonky melodies and unfathomable rhythms. Eclecticism rules.”
Tyler Weaver had me on Parenthetical Recluse as his inaugural interview for a new series. Hear me ramble on about existential dread, Philip Glass, Earth, Wind & Fire, solo accordion free jazz, MAD MEN, and more (very on brand, right?). Read here, and a big thanks to Tyler for asking great questions, and for the kind words about my music.
Thank you so much to Blair Millen for shouting out Farewell, Doomed Planet! as a “genre-bending” album that “deftly crossed various musical plains with aplomb.” Blair’s got loads of great recommendations; see more over on The Letter.
Thanks to The Autumn Roses, a wonderful blog highlighting music by mostly-women composers of all genres, for sharing the video for “Feral At Night” from Farewell, Doomed Planet!, “underground, apocalyptic Sturm und Drang with a sense of gallows humor and vintage style.” See more here and on the blog.
