Marisa Anderson – Cloud Corner (LP+MP3)

Image: 1618481 On her Thrill Jockey debut, acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson’s
music is boundless. Anderson is undeniably a master of
the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on
guitar. On Cloud Corner, Anderson expands on those styles as well
as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political
and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode
to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of
remarkably intimate beauty.
The solo guitar work of Marisa Anderson owes its familiar tones to
her awareness of history and her mastering of her instrument, yet it
is completely new. Marisa Anderson flters musical history through
her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music.
A curious and gifted player, Anderson has spent over 35 years of
performing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. Marisa
Anderson’s Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a
resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the
horizon it looks towards.
“Marisa Anderson doesn’t just play guitar — she sinks into bends
and lingers over melodies, knowing when to light a fre under her
fngers and when to wind like a creek.” – NPR Music
“The deft and vigilant way Portland-based guitarist Marisa Anderson
has with a six-string garnered her some old-fashioned word-ofmouth. Anderson’s ingested both the country blues and bluegrass
lexicon in such a way so as to voice something new.”
– Rolling Stone
“Her sound has strength in restless variety…Anderson’s playing is
heartfelt and utterly American- free from grandstanding and steeped
in respect for the old tradition.” – The Wire
