Album of the Week – 06-09-19

Some good releases this week with the return of Adam Green (Engine of Paradise) and a lovely release from Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Thomas Bartlett ahead of their gig in the Pepper Canister Church.

We went for the new release from Frankie Cosmos which was hard to resist. Greta Kline and friends return with another introspective gem.

“This album is a manifestation of the band’s collaborative spirit: Greta Kline and longtime bandmates Lauren Martin (synth), Luke Pyenson (drums), and Alex Bailey (bass) luxuriated in studio time with Gabe Wax, who engineered and co-produced the record with the band.
 
Recording close to home — at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 Studios— grounded the band, and their process was enriched by working closely with Wax, whose intuition and attention to detail made the familiar unfamiliar and allowed the band to reshape their own contexts. Close It Quietly is a continual reframing of the known, taking the band’s trademark micro-universe and upending it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that’s a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album.”
