5 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Following stints with Kurt Vile and Thurston Moore, Mary Lattimore took her 47-string harp on a road trip across America, collecting inspiration along the way. Recorded mostly at Joshua Tree, this five-track album is richly meditative as well as quietly experimental. Circular harp passages mingle with surreal effects, lending a spine-tingling strangeness to the delicate beauty of “Jaxine Drive” and nine-minute opener “Otis Walks Into the Woods.” Despite a few sneaky increases in tempo and complexity, the compositions remain contently adrift, soothing as they wander.
