Balmorhea: Take their shoes to Rivers Arms

img  Tobias

If the American press reception is anything to go by, „Rivers Arms“ could mark a breakthrough for a band which thrives on a quiet sound and subtle nuances – with even the influential online magazine Pitchfork Media praising the album and its eclectic approach, which supposedly incorporates „the swells of Stravinsky, the mercurial keyboard majesty of Debussy, the triad-based romanticism of Arvo Pärt, the clangorous sensuality of Keith Jarrett, the electronics-meet-acoustics approach of Max Richter, and the beaming melodic flashes of the Takoma Records cartel“. For anyone interested in background details on the production process of „Rivers Arms“, check out this video, which captures them in the studio in full flow:

Balmorhea will also be featured in a documentary on shoe manufacturer „Tom's Shoes“, to be presented at the „Sundance Festival“. Stay put for further news.
