Cross Records’ presence in our tips for the year ahead is totally on the one song I’ve heard, but Wabi-Sabi is a record so good it’s hard to think to think of the year ahead without recommending it highly.

This is the bands second album, Wabi-Sabi is a confident musical stride-forward; an album of textures and shifting-sonic boundaries, lurching from brittle and minimal to thundering and epic. Emily’s hauntingly beautiful vocal pins the whole record together, a fractured murmur with shades of Jessica Pratt or Angel Olsen, it draws the listener close to the speaker, and allows you to become engulfed in the sometimes chaotic and discordant music that swirls around it. A record of perfect, beautiful contrasts, if there are many albums released as good as Wabi-Sabi it’s going to be a magical year of music.
