Brawl Records is proud to present AUGUST SOUNDS from UK and Ireland based musicians Laura Cannell and Kate Ellis with special guests Stewart Lee and Rhodri Davies.
Our Sounds of August offers up a Witches Harp (Telyn Wrachod), a personal ode to the ‘Virus Summer’ written and read by Stewart Lee and the layered sounds of a village pipe organ and cello played in the shadows.
‘Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England’
JUNE SOUNDS from UK and Ireland based Laura Cannell and Kate Ellis is part 6 of a series of EP releases which are written, recorded and released every month throughout 2021 featuring Cannell’s signature evocative overbowed violin and vocals alongside Ellis’s deeply expressive cello playing.
“The summer sun is blazing through our feet on burning sand, creating the shadows that we pass through. It’s glittery light glistens on ancient oceans and leans upon us as we spin. The JUNE SOUNDS EP marks the apex of our year documented in sound & art, we are deep in our sonorous exploration creating a legacy that reflects our changing world.”
“Laura Cannell takes us on an exploration of nature in music. This 60 minute playlist features gorgeous sounds from Mary Lattimore, Colin Stetson and Oliver Coates, a track made by sampling reed beds in Suffolk, some 12th century music based on the work of the German Nun, Herbalist, writer, composer and visionary Hildegard von Bingen, the Bulgarian State Radio and Television Female Voice Choir and Lana Del Rey.”
“This months music has emerged from a time of reflection, the birds have seemed louder in our silence. The music echoes our past conversations and vivid dreams of love and loss. It helps us to remember those who have gone before while we keep moving forward amongst the blossoms of spring, looking forward to summer but never forgetting.” Laura Cannell & Kate Ellis.
