Episode 432: Rosenau and Sanborn's 'Bluebird'
Chris Rosenau (Collections of Colonies Of Bees, Volcano Choir) and Nick Sanborn (Sylvan Esso, Made Of Oak) have traveled in the same creative circles for years now, but it was an off-the-cuff improv set at the inaugural Eaux Claires fest that has led to one of the most powerful releases of 2019, Bluebird. The open window and doors of the small North Carolina studio that Bluebird was recorded in gives the EP a sense of place in the world, but it is the magic weaved between Rosenau’s guitar and Sanborn’s electronic wizardry that pulls the listener wholly out of time and space into a moment of creation that is unlike anything you’re likely to experience this year.
PLUS! Alexandra Sauser-Monnig (Mountain Man) makes her debut as Daughter Of Swords on her new LP Dawnbreaker. Taking it’s subject from the eventual end of Sauser-Monnig’s relationship with her partner, Dawnbreaker is brimming with heartbreak, warmth, and quiet moments of wisdom on how we all deal with the end of a relationship, and learn to love not just someone else, but ourselves again.
