Rachel Sermanni — Tied to the Moon (10th July / July 17th, 2015)

 Rachel Sermanni — Tied to the Moon (10th July / July 17th, 2015)                                                  ♠   Masterpiece! Celokapelové album s nadčasovým a referenčním feelingem a potenciálem bezbolestně převzít vůdčí taktovku od Hope Sandoval či Mazzy Star. Verze CD stojí v přepočtu 402.76czk, verze LP 604.15czk. Ojedinělá shoda pozitivních hodnocení u MOJO, NME, TELEGRAPH a dalších. Uvnitř 38 nejlepších folkových alb roku 2015. Interview také. Za hodně zajímavou považuji její odpověď na otázku k poodhalení vzniku alba Tied To The Moon.
♠   Odpověděla: “Jádro alba bylo napsáno, když jsem měla čtyři dny bez přístupu na internet s předpokladem, že tím získám co nejvíc idylický klid v hrnčířském studiu uprostřed ničeho ve státě Nova Scotia. Chtěla jsem se projít a mít trochu klidu, ukončila  jsem čtení a zatížení z psaní a tak postupně moje potlačené pocity začaly bublat. Napsala jsem sedm písní, čtyři z nich jsou nyní na albu. Zaznamenala jsem je loni v březnu v Kanadě, v říjnu jsem už byla na ostrově Isle of Lewis kvůli nahrání alba. Cítění v písních se točí kolem vztahů s ostatními a zčásti sama se sebou.”
♠   Judith Lynch ze CBC Music píše: “Rachel Sermanni’s new record, Tied to the Moon is delicate, deliberate, focused and really, really, really good.” Moja reč.                                                                                                                                                   Birth name: Rachel Sermanni

OVERVIEW 1
♠   Tied To The Moon was conceived in March 2014, in an apartment above a pottery studio deep in the sticks of Nova Scotia. The apartment belonged to two–time Juno Award winner Old Man Luedecke and offered Rachel four days of complete stillness with no means to communicate with the outside world. Bookended by her routine of going for a morning run in the surrounding ten acre forest and silent afternoons of coffee and pistachios, Rachel would sit, in total solitude; writing; reading; playing music. In the space of these four days she unintentionally wrote six songs — four that would later become the core of Tied To The Moon: ‘Tractor’, ‘This Love’, ‘Banks Are Broken’ and ‘Old Lady’s Lament’.
♠   In total, Tied To The Moon features ten new songs that channel spirits of all ages and archetypes, weaving images of childhood and womanhood, of instinct and inhibition. An indefinable mix of songs, Sermanni’s creations have grown, twisted and turned since those four days in the Novia Scotia solitude to reach a fully — formed stage reminiscent of classics such as PJ Harvey, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell. To achieve this, she enlisted the help of Colin Macleod (recording and production), Jennifer Austin (piano, organ and backing vocals), Gordon Skene (bass and cello) and Louis Linklater (drums) and tracked all takes, live, in Colin’s living room in the Scottish Highlands. 

OVERVIEW 2
♠   Folk–Noir balladeer Rachel Sermanni is returning with the release of her new studio album, ‘Tied To The Moon’, via Middle Of Nowhere Recordings. ‘Tied To The Moon’ is her second full studio album following 2012’s debut, ‘Under Mountains’. ‘Tied To The Moon’ was conceived in March 2014 in an apartment above a pottery studio deep in the sticks of Nova Scotia. The apartment belonged to two–time Juno Award winner Old Man Luedecke and offered Rachel four days of complete stillness with no means to communicate with the outside world. Bookended by her routine of going for a morning run in the surrounding ten acre forest and silent afternoons of coffee and pistachios, Rachel would sit, in total solitude; writing; reading; playing music. In the space of these four days she unintentionally wrote six songs — four that would later become the core of ‘Tied To The Moon’: ‘Tractor’, ‘This Love’, ‘Banks Are Broken’ and ‘Old Lady’s Lament’. In total, 'Tied To The Moon' features ten new songs that channel spirits of all ages and archetypes, weaving images of childhood and womanhood, of instinct and inhibition. An indefinable mix of songs, Sermanni’s creations have grown, twisted and turned since those four days in the Novia Scotia solitude to reach a fully–formed stage reminiscent of classics such as PJ Harvey, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell. To achieve this, she enlisted the help of Colin Macleod (recording and production), Jennifer Austin (piano, organ and backing vocals), Gordon Skene (bass and cello) and Louis Linklater (drums) and tracked all takes, live, in Colin's living room in the Scottish Highlands. Rachel, aged 23, has toured extensively across the world since 2011, making her a young veteran on the gig circuit. In the past four years she has toured across her native Scotland and the UK numerous times, whilst appearing in Canada, USA, Australia, Iceland and across Europe, as well as sharing the stage with names including John Grant, The Staves, Stornoway, Rumer, Mumford and Sons, Ron Sexsmith and Elvis Costello. She has an impressive musical and professional resume, a swath of EP's recorded all over the world, and now two full length studio albums in addition to a 2014 live release that was recorded at Dawson City Music Festival. Rachel's newest release, however, sees her digging deeper than ever and offering a darker and more rhythmic flavour of poetry and music.                                                      REVIEW
By Helen Brown;  2:00PM BST 04 Jul 2015; Score: ****
Rachel Sermanni, Tied to the Moon, review: 'grungy'
♠   “Sermanni makes the Canadian wilderness her own on this earthier second album”, says Helen Brown
♠   Things get grungy on the second album from this fresh–faced, Scottish "folk noir" singer and the grinding guitars prove a gritty foil for the rich, thoughtful vocals showcased on her 2012 debut Under Mountains.
♠   While earlier material leaned towards fairytale imagery set beneath the "bone clean moon" of her native Highlands, this earthier collection of songs has its roots in Nova Scotia where she holed up alone above a pottery studio buried deep in a forest.
• The best folk albums of 2015 (38 best folk music albums of 2015, updated weekly)*
♠   Her response to the silence was to crank up the amps. A chainsaw dirge drives noisier songs like Tractor and Run while an eery wind of backing vocals blows from rockouts into the ballads. The influence of the swaying pines falls on the lovely Old Lady's Lament with its tale of children grown "tall and out of reach" and a wooden cradle kept safe at home. Against a crisply plucked acoustic — with unsettling pings of overstretched strings — Sermanni croons: “Temper, temper, wait for me/ I'm no good with old patience/ Let us hope that someone sweet/ Will call with heavy conscience.”
♠   At times she strives too hard for Tom Waitsian wonky Americana. But more often she makes the Canadian wilderness her own. ♠   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/  // ♠*  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/worldfolkandjazz/11345427/Best-folk-music-albums-of-2015.html
