The alt-folk duo of Kate Adams (Vocals) and Joshua Dumas (Piano / Synth / Mellotron / Vibraphone) from Chicago and New York (USA) released the EP We Gathered at Wakerobin Hollow ~ Chapter 02: A Few Years In Asheville on the 5th.
As will, rightly, be assumed A Few Years In Asheville is part of a concept piece of work. The collection – We Gathered at Wakerobin Hollow – which consists of four hours of music consisting of forty songs – is being released over the course of nine individual chapters which will be released three months apart through to the end of 2019 – narrating the tale of a family, centred around a character named Emma, over a forty year period. The first two chapters take in wide time scales with Chapter 01 covering the first seventeen years and chapter 02 through to year thirty, the final seven chapters – the final decade.
Inevitably each segment is of quite different flavour of composition as the tale unfolds, with A Few Years In Asheville having a wistful melancholia.
From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) my selection is the dour ballad of the penultimate composition – Julia Is Done With Asheville.
