Bloom, Kath - Pass Through Here CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-CH115CD
“'Pass Through Here' is a new album from Connecticut folk icon Kath Bloom, her first for five years. It's a distinctive new sound for Kath, uplifted by floating synthesizers and disembodied choruses, while retaining the direct simplicity and power for which she is loved.
Beginning to perform in the late 70's, Kath is renowned for her 80's private-press recordings with avant-garde guitarist Loren Connors, as well as signature tune 'Come Here', from the soundtrack to the Richard Linklater film 'Before Sunrise'. Over the last 35 years, she has come to be revered around the world for her devastatingly emotional songwriting.
Devendra Banhart has called her "one of the most beautiful singers ever," while Pitchfork says "she can snap a heart like a twig." Chapter brought Kath's music to a renewed audience with solo compilation 'Finally' in 2005 and new album 'Terror' in 2008, as well as reissues of four of the six Kath/Loren albums as double CD sets. Then in 2009, Chapter released celebrated tribute album 'Loving Takes This Course', featuring covers by the likes of Bill Callahan, Devendra Banhart, Josephine Foster and Mark Kozelek. Since then, Kath has recorded for Mark Kozelek's Caldo Verde label, including Thin Thin Line (2010) and 2012 EP Here I Am.
For Pass Through Here, Kath travelled far from her Connecticut home to record in California with a coterie of freewheeling West Coast folk rock types, including engineer Jeff Hassay and fellow performer Levi Strom.”
