℗ 2020 Relapse Records Inc.
The soundscapes here are grounded with fine musicianship and lovely songs while simultaneously seeming to float thanks to her ethereal vocals. Vocals seem almost a misnomer as the sound flows and fluctuates like the northern lights. This album lives in the space between waking and dreams.
I haven’t heard the whole entirety album and songs, but just by listening to the preview it is a masterpiece folk album. I have been waiting for this album since she posted about it and it was put on pre-order. I pre-ordered it once it hit iTunes. I love folk music, I love her voice, the instruments. Absolutely stunning!
I just received a pre-release vinyl and it is stunning. So beautiful. I saw her play at Amoeba in LA awhile ago and she performed some acoustic folk material. This album is mostly beautifully arranged and performed folk tunes. For the moment she seems to have stepped away from her death metal influences. Oddly enough, I hear a little Grace Slick in these tunes. Not a lot, Still this is Myrkur at her finest. So stunning. I could listen to it forever.
