about

Holy Songs blends together elements of lofi ambience, tape loops, and field recordings, with traditional songwriting, expanding on the song based material of Bildungsroman (released May 2014) and the earlier drone-based work of solo Now Wakes the Sea. Recorded to a four track cassette deck over the course of a few sleepless and rainy nights, Holy Songs is saturated in the hiss and warble of old tapes, and collects some of the most intimate and honest Now Wakes the Sea recordings to date.

- Track #4 written by Todd Umhoefer, aka Old Earth.
- Track #8 is an original arrangement of a traditional song.

Note: Due to time constraints, the cassette release features a slightly shuffled tracklisting.

Physical copies and downloads will be sent out Friday 28/11.
