Two years ago, Sar Friedman sent me her album ‘I And Thou‘ and asked if I wanted to release it. I adored it, to me it sounded like Bat For Lashes backed by Sunn O))) – a beautiful combination. But I didn’t have a record label, so I declined Sar’s offer. Another year went by, and Sar asked me again. I thought “if no one else is going to release this, I’ll just need to start a label and release it myself.” And here we are. Provenance is a real thing, thanks to Sar.
This Friday she plays the record in its entirety from beginning to end with Kell Derrig-Hall (The Singing Skies), Ben Morgan (Service Bells) and Ben James (Terza Madre), supported by Melodie Nelson and Lovely Head. It will be magic, and I would love for you to join us. Doors 8pm, show starts 8:30, I’ll be hocking the vinyl on the merch table.
