Longtime Philadelphia harpist Mary Lattimore is having a most excellent 2016. Though she recently departed the city for a new home on the west coast, she left us with a great batch of new music; this summer, her collaboration with Jeff Zeigler, Music Inspired by Philippe Garrel’s Le Révélateur, received some serious critical acclaim. Earlier this year, Lattmore also released her sophomore LP At The Dam via Ghostly International. Most recently, though, is this week’s new song, “The Boy Who Swallowed A Coin.”
Beyond that evocative title – which sounds it should belong to a long-lost Bergman short or something – the song is a sublime, dreamlike soundscape of the sort Lattimore does so well, this time focusing her style into a three-and-a-half-minute nugget that also finds her voice acting as another instrument in the fray. Listen below, and see Lattimore live at Johnny Brenda’s on Tuesday, August 16th with Ahleuchatistas – tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
