An unusual album this one. Cross Record are husband and wife and Dan. Moving from Chicago to Texas, they found themselves working 60-hour weeks, hopping between working at supermarkets, restaurants and nannying. That’s the backstory to what went into the making of Wabi Sabi. It’s an album of ethereal beauty, slightly unsettling in its stillness and calm, only for it to rip open with some heavy psyche guitar and blasting drums. The interplay of quiet and loud, soft and hard is played really well here.
