STREAM HEATHER WOODS BRODERICK’S NEW ALBUMGLIDER
OUT JULY 10TH ON WESTERN VINYL
“a collection of beautifully-layered, echo-heavy songs that span out in unexpected directions” — VOGUE
“bathed in a sonic radiance, but which casts shadows around its edges.” Mojo 3*s
“swelling ambient folk.’ NME
“Woods Broderick’s singing voice mostly recalls Marissa Nadler’s mannered, haunted tone until she embraces Stevie Nicks’ dreamy soar…” Uncut
Heather Woods Broderick (best known for being a longtime member of the Sharon Van Etten band and touring/recording with Efterklang) excels at distilling her experiences into a soulful melancholy that’s enduring both for it’s intimate relatable moments and its persistent sense of mystery. Her uncanny ear for evocative production and gorgeous vocal harmonies are immediately evident on sophomore album, Glider, out on Friday on Western Vinyl and streaming in its entirety via Noisey.
Heather currently lives in Portland, Oregon, but it’s easy to imagine how her peripatetic lifestyle might diminish her sense of a place to call home, while also strengthening her resilience, and her connection to the reassuring constants in her life. Heather’s uncommon sense of ease and grace stems in part from her deeply rooted and intertwined musical and familial background. Though the songs on Glider aren’t explicitly about touring, Heather’s life on the road provides the backdrop and context for her songs that are often about relationships that naturally fade as two people grow apart.
In addition to the Noisey album stream and feature, VOGUE.com also has an excellent interview with Heather.
