Spire 040:Matt Christensen – A Cradle In The Bowery
“Matt Christensen of Chicago’s premier pastoral bliss inducers Zelienople ventures out on his own with this triumphant set of dedications to his young daughter. Siphoning strains of melancholic Americana through the trancelike prisms of groups such as Spaceman 3 and Galaxie 500, he creates swirling vistas on tracks such as mesmeric opener Someday I Won’t Matter that’ll be familiar to his group’s many admirers. But elsewhere Christensen pares back the layers to reveal this beautiful album’s emotive, breathing core, baring pellucid folk patinas that recall everyone from Nick Drake to Damon & Naomi, all shrouded in Christensen’s distinctive, nebulous veil.
Featuring contributions from Type head honcho/Xela stud John Twells, as well as post-production wizardry from Pete Jørgensen, A Cradle In The Bowery marks a milestone in the catalogue of the burgeoning Under The Spire imprint and documents a pivotal stage in Christensen’s own personal journey and continuing evolution as an artist.”
Words: Spencer Grady.
Spire041: Myrmyr – Fire Star
The sophmore release from Agnes Szelag and Marielle Jakobsons (Darwinsbitch/Date Palms) aka Myrmyr.
Following on from their first album, The Amber Sea on Digitalis in 2009 this new album was recoded on Shasta Mountain in April 2010.
Recorded by The Norman Conquest and mastered by Myles Boisen. It’s an album of astonishing fragile beauty and darker, more foreboding atmosphere’e. My words really don’t do it justice, please head to the Shop to hear samples and purchase a copy.
Yes at last, it’s the end of yet another tiresome posting. I can only apologise.
