A Weather
Everyday Balloons

[Team Love; March 15]

Having finally released some “long time coming” solo material in the form of her freely downloadable 2009 EP Northeast Kingdom Demos, Sarah Winchester returns to the day job in A Weather. New album Everyday Balloons finds A Weather stretching but not wholesale revolutionising the hushed beauty of their 2008 debut Cove. There are more electric guitars but the pace is mostly gentle, the backdrops mostly lush, the boy–girl vocals mostly serene and the themes mostly tender. There are no thunder cracks of distortion, no blizzards of static; just a lovely restraint that soothes and intrigues. Everyday Balloons was recorded in the band’s hometown of Portland, Oregon, by engineer Adam Selzer (The Decemberists, White Hinterland).
