    Thao And Mirah

    In 2010, Thao Nguyen, leader of Thao With the Get Down Stay Down, and singer/songwriter Mirah (K Records), linked up for a tour. And now, the two have joined forces to release the self-titled album, Thao & Mirah. The duo recorded the album in a two-week period, with Tune-Yards mastermind Merrill Garbus co-producing, guesting, and writing one song. Various Bay Area musicians also contribute.

    The Ornament

    Nothing gold can stay. Even as he tried to capture it in verse, Robert Frost appreciated the ephemeral nature of beauty. And so does Grant Olsen. Yet a nod to the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet is only one of the reasons the Seattle-based songwriter, best known as half of the duo Arthur & Yu, christened his new project Gold Leaves. An autumnal character imbues these nine originals. Just as foliage buds, changes color, and eventually falls from the branches every season, so too do themes of birth, death and regeneration permeate The Ornament.


    Like most creative types, Olsen's muse is always in transition. The album went through myriad permutations between inception and completion. Although he began work on it nearly four years ago, he scrapped the bulk of those early efforts after a bag containing his laptop and notebooks was stolen. The theft seemed a sign. Perhaps he was writing a second Arthur & Yu album? No. In the space of composing and refining The Ornament, Olsen had married, traveled through Central and South America, seen the birth of new family members, and watched a dear one pass. This transitional period was coupled with observations of his nation in flux, all of which informs the universe of this record. While he hoped to open these subjects up in a manner that would permit a broad range of listeners to relate to the sentiments, he recognized that their inciting intimacy precluded turning these songs into Arthur & Yu tunes.


    Although he wrote all the songs, calling Gold Leaves a solo project is a misnomer. Olsen had a great deal of help making The Ornament. Jason Quever of Papercuts was by his side through most of the recording process, serving as co-producer, engineer, and multiinstrumentalist. Quever helped guide editorial choices, keeping scratch vocals when Olsen wanted to go back into the vocal booth and try again, and laid down the four-in-the-morning cello part that haunts Hanging Window. With a resume that encompasses tutelage under Motown veterans and credits with Beach House and Brightblack Morning Light, Ben McConnell was an ideal percussionist to anchor Olsen's amorphous musical ideas. Thao Ngyuen (Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Thao & Mirah), Amy Blaschke, and members of the Moondoggies all contributed backing vocals.

    Changing Light

    On her fifth solo album, Mirah breaks it down and builds it back up
    again with the street smarts that only years behind the wheel of
    love can inspire.  Ready with the maps and driven to the rhythms
    on the radio dial, Changing Light's ten songs carry us from
    heartbreak to wholeness and all the places in between.
      


    Uprooted from her home after a scorching break-up, Mirah spent
    four years rambling and recording. Tracks were laid down in almost
    two dozen houses and apartments - from the Northwest to
    Southern California to the East Coast. Sparse demos were
    recorded with co-producer Christopher Doulgeris in Portland and
    Los Angeles. Embellishments were then added by a slew of friends
    and collaborators, including Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Mary
    Timony, Emily Wells, and Heather McEntire (Mount Moriah). In
    Philadelphia, Mirah and her sister Emily Zeitlyn (Divers) penned
    "LC," an homage to childhood inspiration Leonard Cohen.
    Seattle-based composer Jherek Bischoff drew up intricate string
    arrangements which were recorded in the living rooms of each
    individual player. And Tune-Yards producer Eli Crews
    co-produced several tracks with Mirah in her new hometown of
    Brooklyn, New York.


    Changing Light's reassuring compass is found in Mirah's
    shimmering vocals and incisive descriptions.  There is yearning
    ("Gold Rush" and "Fleetfoot Ghost") and hot anger ("Goat
    Shepherd"), but no shortage of lyrical and musical playfulness. 
    Whether it be the T. Rex-inspired rough edges of "Radiomind,"
    the rollicking lo-fi bang-and-pop of "Goat Shepherd," or the lush
    pop balladry of "Turned the Heat Off," the album corrals string
    sections and vintage synths with horns, a multitude of guitar tones
    and overdriven drums. With calm and clamor, Mirah brings us all
    closer together through her universal honesty and occasional use
    of the vocoder.


    "It's a break-up record. It has some moments of darkness, some
    twists and turns , but ultimately, there's a resolution," says Mirah. 
    So much can happen in four years, even forgiveness"


    While Mirah has been making independent pop records for well
    over a decade, Changing Light is the debut release on her new
    imprint, Absolute Magnitude Recordings.

    (A)spera


    Her fourth solo album strikes a bold path across a landscape of dynamic and varied melody forms and holds many surprises within its undulating reverie. (a) spera is Latin for hopes and difficulties linked inseparably, as we all are. This brave trek through a fragile ancient forest unfolds, revealing the destruction wrought by cruel conquest, recalls the relics of a love never realized, and decries the loss of ancient wisdom. Kalimba, hurdy gurdy, bongos, horns...instruments for all worlds, all times. Featured musicians include Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Tara Jane O'Neill, and Lori Goldston.
