The house of a certain God An outlier in the land Within the hills of stone A stone’s throw from the sand The Barren Burren In the hour of the flower Not to be found elsewhere Within the cracks of stone Unknown depths of air The Barren Burren sings

Can I open wide Resurrect inside Blossoming in time From the well it springs From the well it rings Coming from below Coming from below New beginnings abound Nature’s age-old sound Running time in tune From the well it springs From the well it rings Coming from below Coming from below Beyond the expectation Dropping adulation Resurrect inside Can I open wide Can I open wide Resurrect inside Blossoming in time

about

It's unusual for an album to be conceived and captured in a single week, with every song included in the exact same order in which they were created. But that's exactly what happened when East Forest and Peter Broderick gathered in a small house in the west of Ireland to write and record music together in April 2022.

Having never met in person before, there was only one precondition: no musical plan — to be fully open to the ancient rocky hillside landscape in County Clare known as "The Burren". Maybe it was the micro-dosing of the wild foraged fungi, or the drinking of pristine waters from an ancient spring just outside — but for both artists, the time together felt precious and magical.

Along with the deep green glades spanning to the ocean dotted with sheep, endless birds, fierce winds, and majestic Hawthorn trees, the goal was to let the landscape speak through the music. A cascade of songs and improvised music emerged — all revolving around a host of acoustic instruments: piano, guitar, violin, intimate vocals, and percussion, along with subtle electronic sounds and extensive field recordings from the local surroundings. The resulting 12-song suite is vastly diverse, from folk songs to ambient soundscapes, from sprawling improvisations to concise compositions, all presented in the order in which the pieces emerged over the course of the week.
