It’s been a long six years of wild change and refinement for Cold Mountain Child, and most joyously, it will really show when you listen to the new “Earth Wave Sway” album. Conceived and documented tenderly in a myriad of places, these recordings came to fruition in the house known as Fireplace Club in Kalamazoo, MI and a little trailer home at Understory Farm and Orchard in Bangor, MI. Themes range from righteous revolt to ecstatic joy within the oneness of nature, but to be honest there is a lot going on here and the lyrics can be seen as a deep cavern of enjoyable exploration and growth. Tyler had an interview with WMUK/NPR that I highly recommend checking out for more details here:
This album was clearly an intense labor of love and I can’t express enough how overjoyed the Diamond Wave Press is to release this earthly gem to the planet.
Find it in the store, and listen to these dew droplets of wonder at the CMC bandcamp. If you haven’t seen it yet, Cold Mountain Child also has a new website with a ton of information, photos, videos, and lyrics here.
Snatch up all the officially released Deep Waters recordings in one swiftly priced CD! Thick blue sleeves with unique photo album covers. Includes a total of 14 songs and 56 minutes. Available in the store.
“After releasing my first Deep Waters LP I felt my internal muse restless about continuing down the keyboard path. After an experimental deliberation period, I set my synthesizer and piano to the side and found new inspiration in the acoustic guitar. In the winter of 2013 (after a lot of practicing) I started writing the first songs that would appear on this EP. A couple of months later my car radio broke and instead of repairing it I chose to turn solo driving time into singing practice. After writing the raw material Tyler Bradley, Jeremy Ruggles, Gerren Young, and Sarah Wallsten helped flesh out the songs. The 6 song EP we recorded will be housed in handmade 20-page photo books, they will be available for $20.”
