RIYL: Julianna Barwick, Mazzy Star, Sigur Ros
Label: Folktale Records
Rococo Jet’s debut Mysterium TremensÂ feels as featherweight as it does operatic. Â Nora Keyes’ vocals are immense, yet barely palpable, echoingÂ the sound you’d hear from aÂ tabernacle choir or a guild of wood elvesÂ in an enchanted forest somewhere on the fringe of civilization. Â This is the kind of music that doesn’t feel right in the background. Â Give it the stage, give it a spotlight, and give it your time.
If you love Julianna Barwick’s ethereal folk albums, this oneÂ should be a no-brainer for you. Â Enjoy two of the album’s tracks below and get a copy of the rare purple wax variant from Folktale Records before they disappear into the cool evening breeze.
