RIYL: Mutual Benefit, Julianna Barwick, Joanna Newsom
Label: Unknown Tone Records
Somewhere alongÂ the hilly terrain of Tulsa, an artist named Annie Ellicott heard an indescribable music swelling around in her head, and it was so beautiful that she thought everyone else should hear it too.Â Only a desire that pure and sincere could have crafted an album like Lonesome Goldmine, a collection of 8 songs as unique as a set of fingerprints and asÂ free-flowing as theÂ Arkansas River. Â Both genreless and formless, these are songs that drift along like an apparition, void of choruses or traditional structure. Â Fans of Van Dyke Parks’ Song Cycle, Mutual Benefit’s Love’s Crushing Diamond and other forward-thinking singer/songwriters like Joanna Newsom and Julianna Barwick will find Ellicott irresistible.
Unknown Tone Records has gone all out with a very limited batch of black vinylÂ housed in letter-pressed jackets. Â Once those are sold out, you can still grab a copy on black vinyl with the regular jackets for $8Â less. Â Have a listen to 3 of the tracks below.
