If you are a fan of Norwegian singer/songwriter Jenny Hval (whose powerful Apocalypse Girl record just came out this month) then you will no doubt see & hear the talents of Briana Marela when she steps into the support spot on their US tour beginning in August. Marela recorded All Around Us in Iceland under the direction of Sigur Ros producer Alex Somers and the album features some percussion workÂ by Samuli Kosminen of mÃºm. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, the introspective Marela employs looping and sampling to weave her magic in and around her lyrics. All Around Us will be released on Jagjaguwar on August 21st. Besides the limited edition smoky vinyl, the record includes a 11×17 poster and download two weeks before the official release.
