"lovely set of guitar/voice studies from vermonter ruth garbus, reminding of kath bloom’s sides (both w/ & w/o loren connors) & linda perhacs’ effortlessly breathy “parallelograms”. but then again i imagine most will compare the omnipresent patina of tape-hiss & chiming guitar figures to liz “grouper” harris; fans of whom will most certainly want to investigate herein" mimaroglu
"ruth garbus used to be in a band called Feathers, she still plays with kyle t. in a band called happy birthday, she lives with c. weisman in brattleboro & her sister is merrill Tune-yards.
is she a singer/songwriter? folk musician? chanteuse? torch singer? jazz vocalist? new age artist? tropicalia? early music?. im not sure what we should call it. maybe all of the above. well it doesn't really matter anyhow because we think you'll think ruth's new album is super good." autumn
