Tasseomancy #4 - Braid. Wind Is Coming

Facebook

It's been over two years since we last heard from Tasseomancy, long enough for me to wonder if they were to return. Especially given Sari and Romy Lightman's increasing role within Austra, with the latter in-between album tours for their most recent release Olympia what better time to seemingly resurrect their own collaboration...

"Braid. Wind Is Coming" is the first song taken from a forthcoming five track cassette and is available to download via Bandcamp ;now - I'm not sure if the tape will follow online or not but it is promised in time for a couple of London shows (including one at The Waiting Room on November 19th - details) with the band looking as far ahead as a third album promised for winter 2014.

The sisters' time within Austra has rubbed off somewhat as this new track is easily the most expansive, electronic they've produced to date, expanded to a quartet according to a write up on their Soundcloud, there are prevalent (if subtle) beats and a bubbling synth line throughout which adds an extra dimension to Tasseomancy's typically ethereal, graceful vocals. "Braid. Wind Is Coming" sees quite the departure from the delicate, acoustic plucks of their debut's 'ghost-folk' and I'm intrigued to hear where they go next...
