Marisa Anderson - Cloud Corner LPThrill Jockey Records
**Regular and limited edition available
On her Thrill Jockey debut, acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson's music is boundless. Anderson is undeniably a master of the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on guitar. On Cloud Corner, Anderson expands on those styles as well as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of remarkably intimate beauty.
The solo guitar work of Marisa Anderson owes its familiar tones to her awareness of history and her mastering of her instrument, yet it is completely new. Marisa Anderson filters musical history through her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music. A curious and gifted player, Anderson has spent over 35 years of performing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. Marisa Anderson's Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the horizon it looks towards.
