Andrew Everard's heads-up :

« This afternoon's 'back to mono' experience comes courtesy of the gorgeous Applewood Road set from Linn Records – single microphone, straight-to-tape, and amazing harmonies.

An excellent recording, definitely highly recommended. You may know Amber Rubarth from her binaural recordings on the Chesky label. Emily Barker is probably best known to most people for her song "Nostalgia", a re-recorded snippet of which is used as the theme music for PBS' "Wallander."

Applewood participant Amber Rubarth's album Scribbled Folk Symphonies, a Chesky Binaural + recording, is also great both musically & sonically. Her cover of REM's Losing My Religion is the song of the month around here.

Thanks very much for posting that. Great performance, but I admit that they miss the cello that's on the studio version.

 

Gonna get Amber Rubarth's other album which has great reviews.

 

If you aren't familiar, fans of this will appreciate Brandi Carlile, who has built a good body of work over the last decade.
