|Summer of the Cat's Eye
|One Perfect Moment
In 2010 Rachel Evans released "Seeping Through the Veil of the Unconscious", an expansive, magic trick of a cassette which captivated an unsuspecting American cassette underground and made dedicated fans instantly. Digitalis released fine editions of the "Seeping..." as well as the acclaimed follow-up "Luminaries and Synastries" on LP which packed an equally potent punch. Since then much anticipation has been created from her work with husband Grant Evans, including a split LP on Aguirre Records in late 2011 and various releases as duo Quiet Evenings
Evans has since been hard at work on an expansive, definitive 2xLP project, carefully arranging sounds to create immense, alchemical side-long tracks which push the boundries of the project into new territory. These incredible new highs are documented in a clear, spacious fidelity where cerebral sounds gently flow and wash through the stereo field creating a beautiful deep listening situation. Big changes in sound and scope are evident; a shift from the murky, mysterious haze of the older recordings into a highly addictive concentrate of airy tones and gem-like glow, each track forming a universal sky-map . There is, however, no loss of mystique. One of Evans most charming elements is her ability to create a divine magnetism, and to capture this very magic unfiltered, raw and uncomprimised. Very few have the capability to create this powerful energy and make is as accessible as Evans does.
