Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Sarah Neufeld is a violinist and composer based in Montréal, Canada. Best known as a member of Arcade Fire, she is also a founding member of the acclaimed contemporary instrumental ensemble Bell Orchestre, and most recently as half of an exciting new duo with renowned saxophonist Colin Stetson.
Her new solo LP, The Ridge, is a body of work that sees Neufeld moving away from Hero Brother's classical minimalism and sepulchral ambience, and into the world of rhythmic pop minimalism. The eight-song affair employs more emphasis on vocalizations than Neufeld's previous works; the interplay between her voice and violin has become strongly integrated and narrative.
The album also features Arcade Fire's Jeremy Gara on drums, adding greater layers to the compositions, creating an intense, dynamic atmosphere, and a captivating listen from start to finish.
