About this item

Deutsche Grammophon is pleased to announce the Yellow Label Debut of new signing Balmorhea! After touring in many constellations as an ensemble, for the upcoming album ‚The Wind‘, Lowe and Muller returned to their core as a duo. Working with producer Jonathan Low (Taylor Swift, The National) Balmorhea has delivered an album that tells a wonderful story through innovative composition, stretching across an extraordinarily wide instrumentarium that we have come to know as Balmorhea‘s unique musical language.

“Rich textures push it past the point of background music, and its gorgeous melodies serve as anchors for even the sparest moments”— Pitchfork.

Slow-burning ambient Americana that manages to captivate while avoiding the histrionics of its post-rock forebears - The New Yorker.

…listening will unravel hidden seams of loveliness. – BBC.

...a sound that evokes imagery of brilliant landscapes and quiet pastoral scenes. Their sweeping instrumentals and sporadic yet haunting vocals draw influence from both classical music and experimental acoustic folk. - NPR.


Barry says: Having been a huge fan of Balmorhea's work for Western Vinyl, their debut for legendary classical label Deustche Grammophon is obviously of huge interest. What we get is a beautiful collection of typically Balmorhean ambience, imbued with their post-rock roots and richly woven round a solid core of airy Americana. Gorgeous.
