Alternative folk duo Kath Bloom and Loren (MazzaCane) Conners had quite a prolific stint in the 80s. Now the kind folk at Chapter Music are reissuing their classic album Restless Faithful Desperate, filled with gentle acoustic folk. The duo's heartfelt songs have influenced a fair share of artists, including Sonic Youth, Bill Callahan, and Mark Kozelek, and not without reason.
- Vinyl LP (CH155LPC1)
- Coloured vinyl
The usual shuffle, cough and an 'oooh'. The sound of Phil finding something he terms as exciting on the new release lists....and yes Kath Blooms 19th album could be a cause of celebration. She's spent the last five winters making it and has roped in guests such as Avi Buffalo and label boss and verbal diarist Mark Kozelek.
Available on 12” Vinyl LP and CD from Chapter music, Pass Through Here is the first album from Connecticut based folk musician Kath Bloom in 5 years. This release marks venturing into some new sonic territory, whilst keeping the rawness of her much more stripped down recordings from the '80s. Moving to Carolina to record with Jeff Hassay and Levi Strom, washes of synthesizer underline Bloom’s heart breaking vocals.
