Shannon Lay – Geist (LP Yellow)

15.00  inc. VAT

Geist feels like a window – or a mirror – into possibilities of the self and beyond. Shannon Lay’s new album is tender intensity, placeless and ethereal. It exists in the chasms of the present — a world populated by shadow selves, spiritual awakenings, déjà vu, and past lives.
Lay is more distinct and expressive than ever; it’s the sound of an artist seeing themselves—their personality and temperament—reflected back to them for the first time. Lay tracked her vocals and guitar at Jarvis Taveniere’s (Woods) studio, before sending them to multi-instrumentalists Devin Hoff (Sharon Van Etten, Cibo Matto) and Ben Boye (Bonnie Prince Billy, Ty Segall). Those recordings were then transferred to Aaron Otheim (Heatwarmer, Mega Bog) and Sofia Arreguin (Wand) for additional keys and flourishes, while Segall provided a guitar solo on “Shores.” The result is far more aesthetically focused and meticulously arranged than the process might suggest.
