Sarah Louise – Deeper Woods (LP+MP3)

Image: 1618136 Praised by Pitchfork as “one of the most exciting fgures in solo
guitar music“ masterful 12-string guitarist and vocalist Sarah Louise
integrates elements of drone, spiritual jazz, and minimalism into her
compositions. Her Thrill Jockey debut Deeper Woods is her frst
album to prominently feature her voice. Louise enriches her warm
singular vocal sound with a lush variety of instruments as well as
layers of harmonies that together create a tapestry of texture. Deeper
Woods features performances by Louise’s House and Land bandmate
and Steve Gunn collaborator Sally Anne Morgan, as well as drummer
Thom Nguyen, and Jason Meagher (Black Dirt Studios), who also
mixed the album.
Steeped in Appalachian folk traditions, Louise’s in?uences are much
broader with shades of psychedelia and experimentalism, pushing
her beyond genre constraints. Incorporating both traditional and
modern methods of composition, Deeper Woods is a re?ection on
the struggle between peaceful isolation and the need for community.
By reframing traditional music styles and lyricism with a feminist
stance, the album blends the spiritual with the cerebral.
Louise has toured extensively over the past year both solo and with
House and Land. 2018 will see an appearance at Pickathon Festival
as well as continued touring.

“Sarah Louise’s music is spiritually and tangibly set apart from her
peers’, her 12-string compositions culled from birdsong and rivers as
well as the sacred drone of Appalachian folk music.”
