Listening Mirror – The Heart Of The Sky
Full colour digipak…
The Heart of The Sky’ was inspired by a trip that Jeff made with his family to a lake called Tequesquitengo in Mexico.
The sounds and atmosphere of the lake and it’s surroundings form the backing to three of the four compositions of slow drone, loops, and reverb drenched guitar on the album. The fourth track ‘ Mixtli Sleeps’ is an interpretation of the Mexican equivalent of Romeo and Juliet – the sad and beautiful story of the princess Mixtli and her prince Popocatepetl, with beautiful, haunting vocals by Alicia Merz.
‘The Heart of The Sky’ was originally released on cassette, in 2011 by Bathetic Records. It sold out pretty quickly, and ever since, Jeff has been asked to make it available again, but in a more accessible format. So here it is, on CD, in an expanded edition that includes remixes by Wil Bolton, Sleeper, and Leon Muraglia.
Listening Mirror was discontinued in 2013, but Jeff and Alicia have continued to work together under the name ‘Snoqualmie Falls’, and have already released a sold out EP, with one album complete, and another in the pipeline.”
