rootless – “The Owls Are Not What They Seem”


Very excited to see rootless back already with another stunner. Last year’s Docile Cobras was a high watermark from Jeremy Hurewitz and he follows it ably with the upcoming Places Remember Us. This time the palate returns to his patient guitar runs, stripping away the ancient instrumentation that marked much of the Cobras material, though he brings on John Also Bennett on flute, adding a meditative glow to the pieces while also dipping them in a bit of shrouded mysticism. The opener, “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” is drenched in an ambient drizzle, with Hurewitz’ guitar slowly padding through the dampened track. Smoke circles of flute give the song a kind of charred feeling, a greyed forest folk that’s ominous in its calm. The new album is out May 14th from Aural Canyon.
