Recommended first album:
Some Heavy Ocean
Emma Ruth Rundle—vocals, guitars, keyboards, flue, bass
Chris Common—drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, vocals
What a gorgeous, mournful, powerful album this is. It obsessed me for weeks and weeks with its emotive power, and how it feels like an emotional journey. Every time I play it I get caught up in it. Though she sounds a little like other artists (Bat for Lashes, Torres) her inventiveness is her own. I adore this album. (Neile)
Marked For Death (2016)
2016—Sargent House—SH 162
Emma Ruth Rundle—all guitars, vocals
Andrew Clinco—drums, percussion
Emma Ruth Rundle and Sonny DiPerri
Such a great album! Haunting and moody in all the best ways. Just as great (or perhaps even better) as Some Heavy Ocean. (Neile)
On Dark Horses
Emma Ruth Rundle—vocals, guitars, flute
Dylan Nadon—drums, percussion
I didn't know how much I needed a new Emma Ruth Rundle disc until this came out. In sound it's very like her two previous albums, but as always the songwriting makes it distinct and dangerously full of emotion. Don't listen to it unless you're ready to get carried into a rich, beautiful, and often aching darkness. This is one of my top albums of 2018. Maybe *the* top. (Neile)
