Last remaining copies of the LP are on their way from Sweden and will be available early next week (week beginning 18th March). We have been waiting on a restock of the brown kraft sleeves, which finally came in, so pre-order here if you missed out the first time around.
“I’m not sure my B grade GCSE English skills are quite up to articulating just how profoundly moving and devastatingly gorgeous this record is. ‘Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So’ is as pure a distillation of the human spirit into sound as you’re ever likely to hear. You can just tell Bridget Hayden submits herself entirely to the music – there’s something just so natural and organic about the way the music seems to slowly pour out of her. Minimal, wraith like guitar shapes appear to be channelling old folk and blues spirits – I swear I can almost hear Karen Dalton communicating from beyond the veil. The entire record just weeps from beginning to end, and yet doesn’t feel maudlin, rather it feels redemptive and somehow uplifting. Her beautifully spectral voice utters a language beyond words that although could never be transcribed, can be FELT ever so deeply. Its a stream of conscious like delivery – the raw energy beautifully captured by the decayed fidelity of the production. Very few modern “human being playing guitar” records resonate with me on this sort of level, but Bridget’s music is just so touching – its fragile and ghostly atmosphere is truly spellbinding.”
“Wow, just fucking wow.”
