Legend of underground music Jarboe joins forces with visionary cellist Helen Money (Alison Chesley) to create a heavy, beautiful record, with Chesley's cello looming massive and distorted over much of the proceedings, and moments of transcendent beauty from Jarboe's ethereal vocal and piano work soaring above the drones and reaching for the beyond. Jarboe is a famed vocalist, musician, and performer, who came to prominence as a vocalist and songwriter in Swans. In addition to her numerous solo albums, she has notably worked with Neurosis and Blixa Bargeld. Helen Money is the nom de guerre of cellist Alison Chesley. In addition to working with Mono, Anthrax, and Russian Circles, she has toured with Joe Lally and Shellac, among others, and released her third album Arriving Angels on respected metal label Profound Lore Records in 2013. Working together and separately on the compositions, Jarboe and Chesley have crafted a seamless whole, with moments of sparse beauty mirrored by howling squalls of intensity. This is a human, organic album; the voice of Jarboe and the many-textured strings of Chesley's cello combine with an earthy depth but reach for the stars. Mastered by Kris Force. Four-panel digipak CD.
