| 25 September 2012 | Reply

Tomorrow RHYS MARSH AND THE AUTUMN GHOST return with their third full-length record, The Blue Hour, in which MARSH leads them into another bold sonic-territory.  In conjunction with the album’s release, is giving fans a chance to listen to The Blue Hour in its entirety as part of their Full Album Listening Party Series.  Get a first listen to the album HEREand pick up a copy of the record HERE.

A video for the first single from The Blue Hour “Read the Cards”.  which was shot in Trondheim, Norway is available for viewing exclusively HERE.

The trademark combination of dynamics & melancholy remains, though this time the strings & Mellotrons have stepped aside for brass & woodwind ensembles. There is also a noticeable change in the vocal presentation – the thickly-layered harmonies have now been stripped back to a more monophonic point of focus. All of these elements come together beautifully, giving the album an incredibly warm & intimate atmosphere.

From the outset – the hypnotic rhythms & longing woodwind arrangement of “And I Wait” which slowly unfurls over seven minutes, after which heading straight into the sixties-tinged “Read The Cards”, with its heavily-staccatoed horn section & old-school double drums – it’s clear that MARSH is pushing further forward.

For The Blue HourMARSH has once again assembled a new AUTUMN GHOST, this time featuring the cream of the crop of the contemporary Norwegian music scene. In fact, this is the first album on which MARSH has chosen to feature an entirely Norwegian line-up, borrowing from bands such as Jaga Jazzist, The National Bank, Emmerhoff And The Melancholy Babies & Pelbo, along with collaborators of Susanne SundførKaizers Orchestra & Magnet. This also marks the first occasion that an AUTUMN GHOST album has been written & recorded entirely in Norway.
