Faye Mallett's (House of Rain) debut album is comprised of songs written over a 3-year period and performed with members of Groundtruthing, a group she co-founded in 2009. All the songs have been slowly built from the ground up, their final form representing a gradual accretion of improvised vibraphone, drumset, vocal melodies, piano, trumpet and guitar roles added and washed away over months, and in some cases, even years.
These are songs that have been lived with, each one charting changes in time and different paths taken to create an overall impression that is intensely present.
