Rivulets – Stars In Aspic
Rivulets is US songwriter Nathan Amundson. He has released albums on Important, Chair Kickers’ Union and O Rosa Records, as well as numerous EPs, split releases and compilations.
Since 2000 Rivulets has toured extensively across the US and Europe, gaining fervent acclaim for his achingly fragile, minimal song-craft.
This is Rivulets’ debut solo vinyl record, and the first physical release since 2011.
Trome Records has been a fan of Rivulets’ achingly fragile song-craft for years now, so we’re really pleased to be able to bring you this beautiful record. ’Stars In Aspic’ on the A side is full-band languid Americana which rocks out towards the end, augmented by Nathan’s distinctive vocals that hit you somewhere in the chest. ’It’s Here’ on Side B hails from the opposite end of the Rivulets sound palette, with a deep, brooding late-night guitar ambient drone.
As ever with Nathan’s work, both tracks on ‘Stars In Aspic’ sound bruised yet searingly honest, the effect of which seeps into the listener and stays there. Artwork is from the photographer Christy Romanick [http://christyromanick.tumblr.com] who has previously contributed sleeve art for Rivulets, Windy & Carl, thisquietarmy, Windsor For The Derby and Infinite Light Ltd among others. Limited black vinyl with thick black card inner sleeves and hand-stamped labels. Essential.
