From deep in rural New York comes a new EP by Red Sled Choir, the mostly-solo project of Matt Gordon, also known for his work with bands like Klessa (klessa.bandcamp.com
) and jordaan mason & the horse museum (jordaanmason.bandcamp.com/album/divorce-lawyers-i-shaved-my-head
). Trades is the first Red Sled Choir release following a long period of experimentation and renewal, and, fittingly, these songs bring an expanded palette of textures and colors to Gordon's vibrant and earthy songwriting. Loops and motifs rise up and fill the space like smoke from bonfires on the last nights of summer, and continue simmering in the dark afterwards. We'll stay outside as long as we can, while the warmth lasts.
released November 3, 2015
