From Stereogum premiere of Rachel Grimes’ upcoming release, The Clearing.
“The Herald” centers on Grimes’ slow-churning piano line, and reaches its climax during a blistering saxophone solo by Jacob Duncan of Liberation Prophecy. If the song is any indication, The Clearing promises gorgeous improvisation over meticulously curated arrangements for strings, harp, piano, woodwinds, and percussion. Hear the track below. -Aaron Lindenberg (Stereogum)
