previously we highlighted her work with her former band MARRIAGES (linked HERE), but the solo work of EMMA RUTH RUNDLE should by no means be overlooked. there is a definite FOLK/GOTH ROCK/POST ROCK vibe with her songs, which almost feel ELEMENTAL as if they rose up reverberating from the ground unscathed or from deep within an ancient forest.
her solo work is definitely more sparse than her work in MARRIAGES or RED SPAROWES, but it has a delicate intimacy that is invigorating and haunting all the same. definitely worth checking out.

an atmospheric power-trio that absolutely crushes, MARRIAGES is made up of current members of RED SPAROWES and DRAB MAJESTY. to my ears they split the difference between the dynamism and baroque songcraft of A PERFECT CIRLCE with the scale and titanic ferocity of POST-METAL icons like ISIS and PELICAN.
deeply affecting and my hope for the future of aggressive rock-based music.
