Prairie - And the Bird Said: Cut Me Open and Sing Me (LP - CLEAR VINYL)

Ships By Release Date
Release Date: 1/8/2021

"Prairie is the project of multi-instrumentalist Marc Jacobs, hailing from Brussels with roots in The Netherlands. 'And the Bird Said: Cut Me Open and Sing Me' is the second full length album on Denovali Records.

By using various recording techniques, analog gear, guitar pedals, synths, amps and human voices, the album creates a fountain of sound layers which coalesce to synthetic and noise infused manipulations, dramatic crescendos and subtle field recordings.

Jacobs focuses on melodies, sometimes hidden melodies, or straight out melodies that took him back to various musical influences, current ones but also from his past, lurking into pop and loving imperfection. The lyrics are the spine of the record, the scenario where various species of birds lead the way, and where each track is a short chapter of the flight.

Jacobs once again showcases a deep sensitivity to narrative and rich cinematic textures by creating a technicolor soundtrack."
