May 2018 saw the release of “Deeper Woods”, the latest album from the American guitarist and songwriter Sarah Louise, via Chicago’s Thrill Jockey Records. Significantly, “Deeper Woods” is Louise’s first LP which predominantly features her own vocals, offset magnificently with her trusted 12-string guitar, a sound which has come to be synonymous with her oeuvre to date, much like fellow Thrill Jockey artists Glenn Jones and Marissa Anderson. “Deeper Woods” also features contributions from Thom Ngyuen (drums) and Jason Meagher (bass) while Louise produced the album at her home-studio in Asheville, North Carolina. As well as recording as a solo artist, Louise is also one half of the duo House and Land – alongside Sally Anne Morgan (who also plays fiddle with The Black Twig Pickers) – who effortlessly fuse Appalachian folk traditions where harmonies forge and coalesce to soul-stirring effect. Thus far, the duo have released their self-titled LP last year via Thrill Jockey. Presented here is an extensive mixtape compiled by Sarah Louise, which – like her own wholly unique musical output – similarly shares both a timeless reverie and profound mysticsm; music which quietly speaks directly to the heart of the listener. Like the respective songbooks of musical visionaries from both of the past and present – Alice Coltrane, Mary Lattimore, John Fahey, William Tyler – Sarah Louise’s artistry and art is nothing short of transcendental.
