Published Mar 21, 2018Ambient-minded Canadian soundscaper Sarah Davachi has revealed plans for a new full-length album. Titled Let Night Come on Bells End the Day, the record will arrive on April 13 via Sean McCann's Recital imprint.
Davachi's new album follows 2017's All My Circles Run and was recorded mainly with a Mellotron and electronic organ, according to the press release. It was also captured entirely by Davachi on her lonesome, and "she both splays her compositional architecture and re-contextualizes the essence of her early output."
Writing of the new LP, McCann further explained, "Two pillars of this album are 'Mordents,' which to my ears drops hints of her love for progressive rock music — and 'Buhrstone,' comparable to a sombre funeral march of piano and flutes. These two examine punctuations of early music, gently plucking melodies and movements. The three other compositions are tonal works, blowing slow jets of lapping harmonics."
He added, "This is a lovely album to fill an evening living room with. A blanket, a cup of wine, a dim bulb, a wide window."
Staring March 26, you can pre-order the album here. The LP version will come with three 9" x 9" art prints featuring photos by Davachi, as well as the CD version.
For now, though, you can sample Let Night Come on Bells End the Day via a newly shared video for album cut "At Hand," which comes via a film by Paul Clipson.
