Hey Marseilles with The Whicker & Pine
Hey Marseilles first won hearts across the US with its 2010 debut, To Travels and Trunks, an album that reveled in the education and inspiration only globe-trotting exploration can provide. With Matt Bishop's lyrical wayfaring abutting an instrumental palette that embraced folk traditionaccordion, strings, and horns; gypsy, Gallic, and classicalTo Travels and Trunks gave musical voice to the universal longing for unfettered freedom. NPR called the record "sublime and heartfelt."
A lot has changed in the world since 2010. The vacillations of the economy allowed Hey Marseilles violist Jacob Anderson to acquire it in 2011; he and his younger brother, cellist and producer Sam Anderson, helped renovate it. Since then, most of the band has lived in it, and the entirety of their new album was written and recorded in it, or nearby. (Other recording spaces included a tunnel in Seattle's Golden Gardens Park, a mostly abandoned brick office building, and a church sanctuary, all because of their advantages for the band's acoustic instrumentation.) Not surprisingly, Lines We Trace is not about going out and searching. It's about finding you're already where you need to be.
Hey Marseilles is an experienced band with a slew of major festivals (Bumbershoot, Sasquatch!) and a national tour under its belt. They've come a long wayonly to find themselves back home.
Put another way, as Lines We Trace suggests, sometimes you don't have to go far to find a meaningful experience. Sometimes the comfort of the familiar is all you need to grow.
