SARAH NEUFELD – ” Detritus “

Posted: May 13, 2021 in MUSIC

Composer and violinist Sarah Neufeld is a career-long touring and recording member of Arcade Fire. Her third solo LP ‘Detritus’, confronts anguish with beauty, turmoil with grace, gliding through the present like a dancer mid-motion, reaching through space ’til she’s caught.

“Detritus” is the stunning new LP from Sarah Neufeld, composer, violinist and career-long touring and recording member of Arcade Fire. We had the honour of releasing this as a Dinked Edition (number 96), we will pop our last three online now. It really is beautiful, quite sad and lots of big, desolate feelings, but there is always the tiniest little glimmer of light in it all. Make sure to check this out and also play it on all sorts of speakers and headphones, the sounds really are brilliant.

The album is wistful and emotive, and carries the listener on a journey of euphoric and complex looped violin dusted with mesmeric melody recall. Openers ‘Stories’ and ‘Unreflected’ lead with atmospheric ease, sombre soundscapes and distant, otherworldly vocals. ‘With Love And Blindness’ ups the tempo with remote, dreamlike rhythms that hypnotise and enthrall. ‘The Top’ is elated, but it highlights the isolated strings and poetic loneliness Neufeld is able to convey with them. ‘Tumble Down The Undecided’ and ‘Shed Your Heart’ are climatic in their delivery, full of cascading notes and delays before closer ‘Detritus’ exits with a state of calm, easing back into the shadows and taking with it the vivid textures and images crafted with infinite grace over the course of the album.
