Storms – Lay Your Sea Coat Aside

Storms are Lori Scacco (Seely) and Barcelonian Eva Puyuelo (Savath & Savalas) and their debut album of minimalist psych folk is Lay Your Sea Coat Aside. Crafted in New York City during an intensive, five week process based collaboration, the duo was joined by local poet Ann Stephenson, who contributed the image laden lyrics. Scacco and Puyuelo play with layers of sound, vocals, guitar instrumentation, and field recordings, adding and stripping away various elements until at times there is sweeping, dense harmonies or at the other end of the spectrum, simply breathing. Regardless, the sonic exploration is fascinating. Highlights are opener “Wolves and Bells,” “Sweet Cup”, “Foxes”, and “The Shipbuilder.” – Written by JFelton
