Product Description

“This new LP from Bridget Hayden has been a long time coming and provides the first full-length documentation of a number of zones that the artist has been inhabiting in live performances of the recent past: blasted, highly personal blues that has lurked under the surface of previous releases but that appears here in starker form; two-chord torch songs that use minimal structure to achieve maximal atmospheric tension; and a vocal melodicism abstracted by a gravitation towards the ecstatic possibilities of noise.

Beginning by using two slowly enunciated guitar chords – in what sounds like Skip James’ tuning – as a solid base on which to layer a variety of sky-bound instrumental and vocal lines, what develops is a record of significant heft and rare intensity, driven by the slow movement of heavy metal slides and the distorted surge of the guitar’s lowest end. The contrasts herein – of density and starkness, turbulence and calm, grounded instrumental drone and vocal soar – are suggestive of great weights being borne and lifted, and of an artist letting go.”
