Boomkat Product Review:
Los Angeles-based harpist Mary Lattimore rides the wave of interest in last year's acclaimed "Silver Ladders", following it up with this bumper set of rarities.
Lattimore's music is unashamedly beautiful. There's an assumption that if you're playing harp music you're attempting to make something that, historically, has been used to flatter some of the planet's most terrifying rulers - adding some reverb and delay only enhances the significance. And few artists handle it quite as well as Mary Lattimore, it's no surprise that she's popped up on a handful of great records this year, most recently Marissa Nadler's killer "The Path of the Clouds".
On "Collected Pieces: 2015-2020", Lattimore welds together her two "Collected Pieces" albums, released in 2017 and 2020, compiling a number of her favorite non-album recordings. If you're familiar with "Silver Ladders" then you should broadly know what to expect, but tracks like the flowery opener 'Wawa by the Ocean' and a blunted home recording of standout album track 'Pine Trees' are worth the asking price alone.
