PENELOPE TRAPPES – Song For Ewe

“Because of these strange days of isolation, it has been impossible for me to visit my family, something that I had scheduled to do just before Lockdown. The longer I am held back, the more I am spiritually drawn back, with my desires to connect to the land growing deeper and deeper…This magical piece takes my heart to the homeland. The composition is built around field recordings of birdsongs, and he experiments with the intonation and tuning of his instruments to reflect the myriad of tunings that each birdsong has.”

MARIEL ROBERTS – Song For Ewe

“The first time I heard this album, I listened to it three times in a row, and then proceeded to listen to it almost every day for the next year or so. The music draws a lot from the Sufi tradition, and for me it has an incredibly strong ecstatic quality which makes listening to it a truly full-body experience.”

AUBREY HADDARD – Song For Ewe

“Lately i have been absolutely OBSESSED with the record Heaven or Las Vegas from Cocteau Twins. Particularly love the song Ice Blink Love — what an incredible melody. I think what draws me to this record most of all is how expansive it feels. I love the guitars speaking the language of synths, the vocals an almost constant hum.”
