Happy days at the Roadburn Records offices. After announcing the release of Black Magician and White Hills US release last week, we have other news we like to share with you. LA chanteuse Chelsea Wolfe will release the set that she and her band played at Roadburn 2012 through Roadburn Records in September. The set (which you can listen to below courtesey of VPRO’s 3VOOR12) was remastered by the band and will only be released on limited edition vinyl. Pre-sales will go up halfway August and the records will be sent out halfway September of this year.
Northern California native Chelsea Wolfe’s sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk, a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. Her voice similarly haunts and soothes, with words that illuminate life’s darker corners in order to reveal the unlikely truth and beauty hidden within.
