Emily Jane White

Blood Lines


IMPREC396   CD


Blood Lines is Emily Jane White's first album for Important since 2009's Dark Undercoat. Featuring vocal contributions from Marissa Nadler. This American version of the CD contains two bonus tracks not available elsewhere.

After releasing three albums in three years, Emily Jane White wrote over 100 sketches between January 2011 and October 2012. Her new album "Blood / Lines" is a selected compilation of these songs. Recorded in a secluded studio in Sonoma County, California, the quiet environment provided Emily a place to explore new directions and avenues with artistic integrity and
creative control. She layered synthesizer, electric guitar and multiple tracks of vocals into nine heavily reverbed scenes. With the help of friends and collaborators, Emily's worlds were diversified with strings, backing vocals, and heavy drums.

Blood/Lines displays loyalty to dark and somber atmospheres through bright sounds, rhythmic drive, and pop sensibility. Love, anger, and violence move through each vignette. Kinship generates complex intimacies. Love can entrap the unwary and betray the devoted.

Featuring additional vocals from Marissa Nadler.

REVIEWS

"Emily Jane White is a rare solo performer who can cut through noisy
club din and turn antsy foot traffic into apt listeners. Ghostly melodies
float through her songs on ornate piano passages and simple guitar
figures. But no matter how you find your way into White's world,
it's easy to stay there. Like the best songwriters, the San
Franciscan leaves room for the listener's subjectivity, with lyrics
that read more like a Cormac McCarthy novel than a diary entry.''
