Published Jul 16, 2018Having already shared her Let Night Come On Bells End the Day LP earlier this year, Canadian electronic artist Sarah Davachi has now teed up a second full-length release set to arrive later this year.
Titled Gave In Rest, the album will arrive September 14 through Ba Da Bing Records.
Seven tracks in length, the LP features A Silver Mt. Zion's Jessica Moss and Thierry Amar on violin and contrabass, respectively, Terri Hron on recorder and Higuma's Lisa McGee on vocals. Davachi, meanwhile, handles flute, mellotron, organ, piano, synthesizer and voice.
According to a press release, "Gave In Rest is a modern reading of early music, reforming sacred and secular sentiments to fit her purview and provide an exciting new way to hear the sounds that exist around us."
In a statement, Davachi said the following about her new album:
From my perspective, there is a lot of loneliness on this record, and I think it is as much about beginnings as endings. In a way, it's about the prospect of the unknown as it manifests alongside a very inward form of grieving — really the essence of what constitutes a period of transition. I remember reading recently that in the Middle Ages, the funeral rite was not just an expression of mourning, but that it also carried a sort of ontological vehemence insofar as it symbolized life.
Gave In Rest is currently available for pre-order on CD and vinyl over here. You can hear "Evensong" [via Noisey] in the player below.
