Label: Penultimate Press – PP27 Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue Country: UK Released: 10 Feb 2017 Genre: Folk, World, & Country Style: Folk
Locusts and Gegenschein follow up the highly acclaimed ‘Music for Church Cleaners’ release from Irish artist Áine O’Dwyer. Whilst continuing to explore the church organ as the primary instrument, these two releases steer away from Church Cleaners in both sonic content and themes explored.
Recorded & performed in 2015 at St James’s Church, Barrow-in-Furness, England & The First Unitarian Congregational Society Church, Brooklyn Heights, New York. Locusts presents itself as a celebration of the pipe organ’s acoustical abilities of tapping into electronic pulses along with O’Dwyer’s liturgical memories which are at times, pushed into horrorthon states.
