Wrekmeister Harmonies 1

Wrekmeister Harmonies will be releasing their new full-length, titled Light Falls, on September 16th through Thrill Jockey. The group – whose core are JR Robinson on vocals and guitar, and Esther Shaw handling keyboards, piano, violin, and vocals – are joined by Godspeed You! Black Emperor musicians Thierry Amar on bass and contrabass; Sophie Trudeau on piano, violin and vocals; and Timothy Herzog on drums. Additional guest appearances on the album include Ryley Walker and Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas). Robinson comments on the album, saying:

“I wanted to sonically convey the idea of slow, creeping change. When I came up with the title I was thinking of how when daylight turns to night time it’s a very gradual process. You are lulled into watching this slow, peaceful sunset but then all of a sudden you look up and it’s dark.”

Light Falls is now available for pre-order on CD and LP at this location.

Light Falls track listing:

1. “Light Falls I – The Mantra”
2. “Light Falls II – The Light Burns Us All”
3. “Light Falls III – Light Sick”
4. “The Gathering”
5. “Where Have You Been My Lovely Son?”
6. “Some Were Save Some Drowned”
7. “My Lovely Son Reprise”
