Bridge Carols

It won't be out until February 9, but below you can listen to the new album, Bridge Carols, from Laura Gibson and Ethan Rose (you can preorder the album and download an mp3 on their site). Beautiful and bewitching, the album is the evocative result of Laura's lovely, haunting voice being processed through and juxtaposed with Ethan's electro-acoustic sorcery.

As some of you already know, Ethan is an old friend of mine--though I've been woefully inadequate at staying in touch with him the last couple of years--and even when we were young teenagers I had a hunch he was some kind of genius. His other albums are all excellent too, and it breaks my heart that I was never able to make it to Transference, his amazing-looking collaboration with glass artist Andy Paiko at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR.
