Phaedra  - The Sea mp3 flac

Phaedra's debut album "The Sea" is the first in a song cycle trilogy of "fragments of homegrown mythology, physical and spiritual metamorphosis, death, the other side and losing your soul". Ingvild Langgård not only composed and wrote the eight songs on the album, she also played most of the instruments, including acoustic guitar, piano, zither, harmonium, Fender Rhodes, mbira (a thumb piano), synth, glockenspiel and chimes, did all string arrangements and co-produced the record with Frode Jacobsen (ex-bassist from Norwegian extremely popular band Madrugada)

The Sea, the intriguing debut from Phaedra, has invited comparisons with Susanna and the Magical Orchestra, and it’s not hard to see why. As with S&MO, Phaedra is Norwegian, on Rune Grammafon, boasts stunningly pure vocals, plays music of a vespertine nature, and leads you to believe it is a full band, when in fact that is not the case. Where S&MO was a duo, though, Phaedra is entirely the work of one Ingvild Langgård, an Oslo National Academy of the Arts alumnus. As one of the few definite choruses on the album gives way to the second verse, a backing choir (presumably consisting of myriad digital Ingvilds) performs what can only be described as vocal mass-inhalations and exhalations. On alternating lines, the sound either lifts you up or forces you down, in an explosion of wordless enthusiasm.
