"Long-delayed 3rd album by internationally acclaimed solo artist, Rivulets. Featuring guests Jessica Bailiff (Kranky), Chris Brokaw (Codeine, Come, the New Year), Christian Frederickson (Rachel's), Fred Lonberg-Holm (Boxhead Ensemble), & Bob Weston (Mission of Burma, Shellac). Rivulets is the project of minimalist singer-songwriter Nathan Amundson. This is not a folk album. This is an album about hearts breaking, tearing it down, and moving on. Rivulets is a prolific songwriter, with releases out on several labels, including Acuarela, BlueSanct, Silber, and Chair Kickers' Union. This is Rivulets' 3rd full length album, and 1st for Important records."
"Important Records is proud to issue the fourth album, second for Important, from Nathan Amundson's Rivulets. With a beautifully authentic emotional depth Nathan's voice is his most compelling instrument, a tool for delivering pure emotion from his heart straight into yours. Representing five years of work and nearly constant touring, this album reflects the intense nature of Rivulets as a three piece. If you haven't seen them on tour this record will come as a revelation. Recorded, appropriately, at the Sacred Heart Music Center, a cathedral built in the late nineteenth century."
The title is just a phrase that kept popping up in my head as we were recording. It reflects the feeling and atmosphere of the songs in some ways but probably has more to do with my own frustration with the world -- with people and politics and the lack of any meaningful or lasting change. And just being sick of nobody out there saying anything at all. Just this completely vapid cultural/musical landscape. You know, I'm on the fringes anyway; I may as well say what I mean.
is not intended as the end of the discussion, but the beginning. It's 'We're fucked. Now what?'
" --Nathan Amundson
