El Perro Del Mar:: From the Valley to the Stars

Sarah Assbring’s El Perro Del Mar, released its’ second album From the Valley to the Stars, on The Control Group in North America. The record was done in Sarah’s own studio in Gothenburg, with sessions beginning last spring. From the Valley to the Stars is a grouping of sundrenched episodic daydreams, levied by slow burning melodies and organ hum. Running steady throughout is a solemn vein that lends to a surreal gospel/church atmosphere, that works well with El Perro Del Mar’s slow to dry tunes. The sounds diversify tone well enough to keep strong, from the early rock’n’roll piano of “You Can’t Steal a Gift,” to the unveiling of the sun on “How Did We Forget?,” coming to prominence with a dominant bass riff and intermittent horns. From the Valley to the Stars is a fabulous mood piece, packing all the drama and spark of a long day’s journey, with a bit of unsettled feeling at the end.
