Peggy Sue Choir Of Echoes on 180g LP + CD
London-based indie rock band Peggy Sue is gearing up for the release of their third full-length album, Choir of Echoes. Featuring 13 new tracks, the album was recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales, and was produced by Jimmy Robertson and mixed by longtime collaborator John Askew.
Of the record, the band says “Choir of Echoes is an album about singing. About losing your voice and finding it again. Voices keeping each other company and voices competing for space. The call and response of the kindest and the cruelest words. Choruses. Duets. Whispers and shouts.”
The new album follows 2011’s Acrobats, which NPR called “mountainous and brooding.” Additionally, 2012 saw the self-release of a collection of reinterpretations of the groundbreaking soundtrack to Kenneth Anger’s 1963 cult classic short film Scorpio Rising. The 12 tracks resulted from their performances playing live alongside a screening of the film, and were issued as a series of 1,000 hand stamped, packaged and signed CDs.
"Folky modal tunes, insistent drones and lyrics with Biblical and allegorical overtones...Tales of love, death and transformation, invoking tradition but bristling in the here and now." - The New York Times
