Headdress – Turquoise

smallbeam.jpg

Headdresses new album Turquoise was “recorded in a hollow hill in the grasslands of the Sonoran desert under the moon of shedding ponies.” While listening to Turquoise I had the overwhelming feeling of being back in Tucson, taking shelter from the monsoon season and taking it all in through an old and dusty window pane. I spent three summers there and it’s truly something everyone should experience at least once. It’s no wonder that so many artists find inspiration from the red earth and blue sky of Tucson, Arizona. The slow and ethereal onset of the monsoon storms echo the feeling one gets while listening to Headdresses songs. Rain drop guitar plucking, windy vocals and distant claps of thunderous tambourine combine to paint the deserted backdrop of Turquoise. Once in full downpour, the rivers of the album run full and wolves come out to stretch their legs. The climax is the day after with the formerly crackled and dry dessert now green and full of life; crickets and birds sing out, and lazy rays of sun dance through the guitar, shimmering as they strike the mountains of vocals.

Headdress is out now on Totem Songs and is limited to only 250 copies. Visit their website here to purchase a copy.
