Shares new track "It Feels Like Floating" - New album 'Hundreds of Days' out May 18th on Ghostly International

A second dose of blissed-out experimental harp from the new album.Today LA-based stereotype-shattering harpist Mary Lattimore has shared a second track from her expressive and free-flowing new album ‘Hundreds of Days’, out on May 18th via Ghostly International.
 
Speaking of new track "It Feels Like Floating,” Mary explains:  “It started off being a song about a description of a guy's drug experience - it was the answer when I asked what it felt like to him. The song morphed into an ode to anything that you do alone and personal; be it swimming or skateboarding in the night by yourself; riding a bike or playing a harp in a redwood barn by the Pacific Ocean. It's looking at the world through a filter of blissed-out detachment, untouchable for a minute.”.

Announces new album 'Hundreds of Days'   Out May 18th on Ghostly International

 

Ahead of US tours with Iceage, LA-based harpist Mary Lattimore has confirmed details of her new record,‘Hundreds of Days’, which is set for release on May 18th via Ghostly International. 
 
She has given a first glimpse of the album with track “Hello From the Edge of the Earth”, an earnest reflection of Lattimore’s love of the natural world, recognising the thresholds of varying terrains.  
 
Memories — places, vacancies, allusions — are fundamental characters in Mary Lattimore's evocative craft. Inside her music, wordless narratives, indefinite travelogues, and braided events skew into something enchantingly new. The Los Angeles-based harpist recorded her breakout 2016 album, ‘At The Dam’, during stops along a road trip across America, letting the serene landscapes of Joshua Tree and Marfa, Texas color her compositions. In 2017, she presented ‘Collected Pieces’, a tape compiling sounds from her past life in Philadelphia: odes to the east coast, burning motels, and beach town convenience stores.
 
In addition to her own music, Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa. She has been a part of soundtrack projects including the Valerie Project, Lopapeysa, a film byDavid Kessler set in Iceland, and the film score for Marina Abramovic: the Artist is Present, a documentary about the artist. In March 2013, she accompanied Nick Cave's beautiful horse soundsuits for the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Station in New York City.
 
Now, in 2018, from a restorative station — a redwood barn, nestled in the hills above San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge — emanates ‘Hundreds of Days’, her second full-length LP with Ghostly International. The record sojourns between silences and speech, between microcosmic daily scenes and macrocosmic universal understandings, between being alien in promising new places and feeling torn from old native havens. It's an expansive new chapter in Lattimore's story, and an expression of mystified gratitude. A study in how ordinary components helix together to create an extraordinary world.
