This is a release defined by dynamics and the voice and words of the person behind mourning dove Elena Botts. At times frenetic with noise, at others silent aside from the voice, this is an album that won’t sit contently in the background. It demands your attention and deserves it. In many ways this is the soundtrack from the pandemic. Botts seems equally adept at producing anxiety and calming the nerves.
I’m very excited to present this work to you. I hope you all can spare a moment in the holiday hustle to give this a listen. Also tapes make super rad presents!
