Arbouretum
Rites Of Uncovering
Thrill Jockey (THRILL-180-2)

$13.11 - Buy CD
The title of Arbouretum's second album alludes to a process of constant questing that is part of the band's raison d’etre, what singer and guitarist Dave Heumann describes as “a sense of religiosity that is not tied down to a particular moral or ecclesiastical approach, but rather proto-religious feelings such as awe in the face of something greater.” In this case, that “something greater” is the music itself and/or the source thereof.

Dave Heumann lives and works in Baltimore. He has played with Anomoanon, Bonnie “prince” Billy, Cass McCombs and Papa M. Heumann’s idea for the band was one whose songs would evoke natural forms and movements as opposed to architectural constructions with rigid forms and linear progressions. Whilst the band’s debut, Long Live The Well-Doer, was largely an individual process with players working to articulate Heumann’s vision, Rites of Uncovering is the work of a group. Joining Heumann to fill out the band is long-time friend and multi-instrumentalist Walker David Teret. Also on the album is drummer Mitchell Feldstein of Lungfish, who filled in when David Bergander, of Love Life and the Celebration, had to depart for other commitments mid-way through the recording. Bassist Corey Allender also played in bands such as Stars of the Dogon, Fascist Fascist, and Cass McCombs’ band before joining Arbouretum.
