Chelsea Wolfe "Birth of Violence (Sargent House)"
Its (relatively) easy to release a summer album. Some good time vibes, something easy to party and rock out with-and you have yourself a summer album! But what, dear reader, of the fall album? Well that is a trickier apple to bob for. Leave it to office favorite Chelsea Wolfe to release what might be the perfect autumnal album. Stripped of much of the loud, sinister sounds she’s been known for recently, Birth Of Violence (Sargent House) is a stunningly beautiful record. Acoustic guitars; haunting, stripped back production; and Chelsea’s gorgeous vocals–along with her knack for songwriting–are the stars here. The whole thing just oozes a chilly beauty (like a candy bar left in the freezer–except good for you!). Now if all this doesn’t sound like the perfect fall release to you, then I suggest you check out the first single from the album “The Mother Road” and see (with your ears, that is) exactly what I mean.
