On May 11th, Sarah Louise will drop her first LP with recent label, Thrill Jockey. The album named ‘Deeper Woods’ is the bright conversation of Appalachian folk tradition, with psychedelia and experimentation pushing her artistic frames. Prior to that she’s released the second single ‘When Winter Turns’, which features Jason Meagher and Thom Nguyen.
“This song celebrates the transition from winter to spring in the Appalachians. I wanted an electric guitar solo so I started playing my Mexican strat again that I got when I was 18, spending hours jamming to all kinds of records, especially jazz.”
“I love playing with certain types of jazz because unexpected notes work in so many interesting ways. I also used feedback for the first time, which I did with a hollow body guitar.” – Sarah Louise.
She’ll be making an appearance at the upcoming Thousand Incarnations of the Rose festival in Takoma, MD on April 14th.
Sarah’s rep’ed by Thrill Jockey.
