Mary Lattimore LP

In the afterglow of her acclaimed 2020 album “Silver Ladders” (a year-end favorite of NPR, Pitchfork, The New Yorker, and others), Los Angeles-based harpist and composer Mary Lattimore returns with a culminating pair of releases: a limited edition LP/CD, Collected Pieces: 2015-2020 (out digitally on October 29th, 2021 and physically on January 14th, 2022) and a limited edition cassette, Collected Pieces II (out October 29th, 2021). Both collect new and previously unreleased material, Bandcamp-only singles, and other obscurities.

The lead single and one of the newest tracks in the CP II set, “We Wave From Our Boats” was improvised during the early days of lockdown in 2020, after Lattimore walked her neighbourhood. “I would just wave at neighbours I didn’t know in a gesture of solidarity and it reminded me of how you’re compelled to wave at people on the other boat when you’re on a boat yourself, or on a bridge or something. The pull to wave feels very innate and natural.” That energy is reflected in the track’s video directed by Hari Leigh.
