claire rousay + Jules Reidy

silent green presents

claire rousay is a singular artist, known for challenging conventions in experimental and ambient music forms. rousay masterfully incorporates textural found sounds, sumptuous drones and candid field recordings into music that celebrates the beauty in life’s banalities. Her music is curatorial and granular in detail, deftly shaped into emotionally affecting pieces. sentiment is a meditation of the poignant emotional terrains of loneliness, nostalgia, sentimentality, guilt, and sex. The album’s narrative arc is guided by delicate musical gestures and artistic vulnerability, audaciously synthesizing disparate and unexpected influences. rousay crafted the songs in various homes, bedrooms, hotels, and other private places, the feeling of time and energy spent alone radiating from each passage. The album is a collection of heart-rending, incisive pop songs that explore universal feelings with subtlety and remarkable vision.

"Sentiment is testament not only to rousay's ability to work with and expertly curate a myriad of sounds, instruments and techniques, but also to her gift for forming them into atmospheres and narratives of genuine emotion." – THE WIRE

Jules Reidy
Jules Reidy makes music for processed and acoustic instruments (mostly guitars). Their recent recorded work—World in World (Black Truffle 2022), Vanish (Editions Mego 2020) and In Real Life (Black Truffle 2019)—can be described as a series of non-traditional song forms which combine unstable harmonic territories, rhythmic elasticity and abstract narrative over stretched, episodic forms.
