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.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 05 February 2015

There she is on the cover tethered to a massive horse. Veteran folky Kath Bloom is most famous for a string of private press records in the ‘80s and for many collaborations with guitar totin’ oddball Loren Connors. This is her first record in five years and it contains a brand of ramshackle folk compositions, some of them you can imagine being covered by earnest folkies in years to come.

‘Bubble Bath’ is excellent... or was until I finally figured out that the melody is exactly that of ‘Umbrella’ by Rhianna. Still, with its guitar glissandos and wavering hesitant vocals, it's quite the delight. There’s a more raucous to feel to tracks like ‘Discovery’ - the slightly off key vocals help the tracks in the same way Daniel Johnston’s help his compositions have that vulnerable air we love so much. In fact Johnston is quite a worthy comparison -- think of him as an elderly woman, and working in more of a back porch folk vein. What I mean is that the music often sounds like its about to fall apart but has bursts of tremendous songwriting and is quite wonderfully affecting.
