Good heavens – five years go by – what can one do?

The music of 'Divers' is a wonder of considered arrangements – a taut line, threaded with the pearls of passed and passing times; a round, a chant, an incantation, a ray of light diverted eleven ways, into eleven songs that striate, in chromatic collusion, their simultaneous arc, a span that takes in lifetimes, but is immaculately sequenced for telescoped brevity.

With a complexity of strings and wires, winking beneath the lacquered layers of instrumental nacre, biding quietly between the ranges of rhapsodic arrangement – including those by Nico Muhly, Ryan Francesconi, Dave Longstreth, Dan Cantrell, and Newsom herself – there lies an intimacy seldom achieved, and simply heard.

Recorded with snow-bright, high-noonverity by Steve Albini and Noah Georgeson, mixed in phantasmagoric, deep-seasaturation by Noah and Joanna, and loosed, fricken finally, by Spunk Records. We have reached Peak Newsom. 'Divers' is coming, to incline into your many and varied lifelines, for now and then and the rest of the moments that will always return in your lifetimes again.
