Product description

Product Description

Folk-Noir balladeer Rachel Sermanni is returning with the release of her new studio album, 'Tied To The Moon', via Middle Of Nowhere Recordings. 'Tied To The Moon' is her second full studio album following 2012's debut, 'Under Mountains'. 'Tied To The Moon' was conceived in March 2014 in an apartment above a pottery studio deep in the sticks of Nova Scotia. The apartment belonged to two-time Juno Award winner Old Man Luedecke and offered Rachel four days of complete stillness with no means to communicate with the outside world. Bookended by her routine of going for a morning run in the surrounding ten acre forest and silent afternoons of coffee and pistachios, Rachel would sit, in total solitude; writing; reading; playing music. In the space of these four days she unintentionally wrote six songs - four that would later become the core of 'Tied To The Moon': 'Tractor', 'This Love', 'Banks Are Broken' and 'Old Lady's Lament'. In total, 'Tied To The Moon' features ten new songs that channel spirits of all ages and archetypes, weaving images of childhood and womanhood, of instinct and inhibition. An indefinable mix of songs, Sermanni's creations have grown, twisted and turned since those four days in the Novia Scotia solitude to reach a fully-formed stage reminiscent of classics such as PJ Harvey, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell. To achieve this, she enlisted the help of Colin Macleod (recording and production), Jennifer Austin (piano, organ and backing vocals), Gordon Skene (bass and cello) and Louis Linklater (drums) and tracked all takes, live, in Colin's living room in the Scottish Highlands. Rachel, aged 23, has toured extensively across the world since 2011, making her a young veteran on the gig circuit. In the past four years she has toured across her native Scotland and the UK numerous times, whilst appearing in Canada, USA, Australia, Iceland and across Europe, as well as sharing the stage with names including John Grant, The Staves, Stornoway, Rumer, Mumford and Sons, Ron Sexsmith and Elvis Costello. She has an impressive musical and professional resume, a swath of EP's recorded all over the world, and now two full length studio albums in addition to a 2014 live release that was recorded at Dawson City Music Festival. Rachel's newest release, however, sees her digging deeper than ever and offering a darker and more rhythmic flavour of poetry and music.

Rachel Sermanni is a bit of an oddity in UK music. Folk based, but not seemingly hugely embraced by the folk scene - in a world of resurgent folk music she should be better known than she is; or maybe people prefer the folk-lite of Mumford, or the party in a pub music of Bellowhead. Sermanni is a very capable guitarist able to create beautiful melodic pieces that serve her songs well. She is also a superb singer with a unique voice that floats between octaves effortlessly, mixes sweetness and light, with darkness and strangeness, sometimes in the same song.

Tied To The Moon is her second LP and shows a progression in style, whilst remaining faithful to Under Mountains as it's predecessor. 'Run', 'Wine Sweet Wine', 'I've Got A Girl' and 'Tractor' show more obviously how things have moved. More electric instruments, holding and emphasising the pace of the songs, while the acoustic guitar, fiddle and Jen Austin's gorgeous piano weaves it's beauty through the tracks. However the other tracks show Rachel building upon her previous work.
'Old Ladies Lament' is a track delivering exactly what the title says, but with Sermanni's beautiful lyrical turns of phrase it goes beyond the simple expectations of the title. 'Ferryman' is a dark tale of lovers escape, and also has those lyrical turns I love so much "but caution was in his rowing, for love like this, he said, don't ever float"; 'Don't Fade' is a showcase for Austin's piano and Semanni's guitar and voice weaving a hypnotic tale "I've been melting into words"; 'Begin' is a story of blossoming change "dive in, dive in, how do we begin?", "flames so tender and mild, burning great, big holes"; 'This Love' paints a picture of a love full of strangeness and darkness, "this love is nothing new...

A staggering progression from the first album - I was enchanted by 'The Fog' and the rest of her debut was solid enough. But I was properly surprised to hear the leap in skill, lyrics and nuance in this latest batch of songs.

As others have noted, Run, I've got a girl, and Tractor add a grittier, electric vibe to her undoubted songwriting talent. The duet Banks have been broken is almost Leonard Coheny in its carefully turned wordcraft - Wine Sweet Wine is scarily catchy and reminds me of Mary Lorson's work in Saint Low - I've got a girl sounds like Tom Waits, Run has a Velvet Underground drone - Tractor plays like a fabulous indiepop anthem and then drops a slab of PJ Harvey-esque dissonance into the middle of the song before slyly pulling it all back together. Old Lady lament and Begin sound a bit like Liz Green. Last time I felt this excited at an emerging talent was when I heard St.Vincent's debut.

If that sounds an eclectic mix of influences, then I apologise for leading you up the garden path - because the highest compliment I can pay this album is that Rachel S never sounds anything more or less than herself. This is the sound of an artist in full possession of her craft. Best album of 2015 - can't wait to hear what she does next.

This is a well crafted record with lyrics that will melt you and make you think; and the music which surrounds these lyrics is intriguing in its flow and in its tension.

There is a wisdom to this record. Very recommended.

I heard a very small piece of this album of the radio and was intrigued......
This really is a great album if you like the style. Quite unlike any other artist that I can think of - a mix of folk, country, jazz, blues and much besides. Perhaps SLIGHTLY Natalie Merchant, but better? Not only is Rachel's voice very attractive the musical arrangements are superb - being a guitar addict it gets my vote in spades.
Take a listen on YouTube - if you like this at all you'll probably be a near instant fan and admirer.

My Son and I went to see the Punch Brothers at the Festival Hall in August and came away big fans of Rachel Sermanni; we already loved the Punch Brothers.
No doubt about it, Rachel is a major new talent and both her albums are first class. She has a lovely voice, an innate sense of when to add harmony vocals and is a fine guitar and mandolin player.
We are both looking forward to her next album, and to seeing her again, live

This is a brilliantly crafted album with hauntingly beautiful creations. My favourite is "Don't Fade". Recently nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year, Rachel Sermanni is exemplary of the wealth of talent bursting through the Scottish scene right now
