A Closer Listen tends to be positive in its reviews, so sometimes it’s difficult to tell what we like the most. This page highlights the releases we have on repeat.
Hatis Noit ~ Aura (Erased Tapes)
Aura is an exultation of awe and wonder, produced with nothing but the human voice, not a lyric in sight. Hatis Noit’s debut album is reverent, playful and joyful, a cavalcade of emotions swirling into a revelation.
Ginevra Nervi ~ The Disorder of Appearances (La Tempesta Dischi)
Combining her film work with the lyrical sensibilities of her last EP, Ginevra Nervi has produced something entirely new: a metamorphic album whose sonic landscape shifts within the ears. The excitement never wanes on a generous set filled with constant surprises.
Max Richter ~ The New Four Seasons (Deutsche Grammophon)
Some people may ask, “Why would I need The New Four Seasons when I already own Recomposed? The answer is simple: the two releases are vastly different in timbre. The latest take on the classic is played on period instruments ~ save for the Moog!
