rauelsson / peter broderick - Replica
Sumptuous suite of introspective folk and strong but quiet string arrangements from Spanish-born, Portland OR-based Raúl Pastor Medall and Peter Broderick. After initially exchanging songs ideas via email for some time, the pair finally embarked on summer recording sessions at Raúl's home in SE Portland, resulting in two long works of a fragile, plaintive but arresting nature. Their quietly engaged dialogue features Raúl's eloquent Latin whispers hushed melodic lyricism layered around Peter's solitary string arrangements, meandering piano lines, embellished with occasional backing vocals and flute from Heather Woods Broderick. The track's delicate structuring feels like we're hearing a series of smaller vignettes breezing by in a refreshing wind. The pair feel enough at ease to conduct moments of near silence, elegiac interludes preparing the space for a new idea or phrasing. The exquisite mastering finish from Nils Frahm at his studio in Berlin only emphasizes the album's poignant nature.
