RIYL: Julianna Barwick, Mazzy Star, Sigur Ros

Label: Folktale Records

Rococo Jet’s debut Mysterium Tremens feels as featherweight as it does operatic.  Nora Keyes’ vocals are immense, yet barely palpable, echoing the sound you’d hear from a tabernacle choir or a guild of wood elves in an enchanted forest somewhere on the fringe of civilization.  This is the kind of music that doesn’t feel right in the background.  Give it the stage, give it a spotlight, and give it your time.

If you love Julianna Barwick’s ethereal folk albums, this one should be a no-brainer for you.  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.
