Mirroring – “Foreign Body” – [Kranky]

As a collaboration between Liz Harris (Grouper) from Portland, and Jesy Forentino (Tiny Vipers) from Seattle, this project is dripping with the thick, aqueous, pacific-northwest fog. Classical folk songwriting immersed in an acid washed, narcotic drowsiness like a dense marine layer rolling over grandiose headlands with overwhelming grace. Misty vocals and ethereal guitar sweeps drown away in the harmonic swells of luminescent drone. The Forentino led tracks (2,5) have a little more traditional feel, with guitars and vocal featuring more prominently, otherwise the tracks drift listlessly and dreamily. We float from track to track so delicately it’s like the wind is pushing us along, gently pulling our eyes closed all the way to the final sleepy lullaby. Warms you and calms your breath like hot tea on a rainy afternoon.
