Known for their quiet take on urban city life, NYC band Ida have pulled a Thoreau, vacating the metropolis to record their newest record in a wooded, Catskill retreat near Woodstock NY. The result of such a pastoral positioning is Ida’s seventh full-length, Lovers Prayers; a brand new collection of tracks that apparently captures the band’s studio surroundings within the confines of the compositions.

From the press release...
“Strange buzzing sounds, incandescent acoustic drones, dissonant tone clusters of unknown origin, the distant communications of birds, and unobstructed views of the night sky suffuse the gently strummed guitars, sparse piano notes, and poignant personal narratives of Daniel Littleton, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Karla Schickele...Ida's interest in sparseness, minimalism, and sound worlds is in abundance on Lovers Prayers, but these concerns are never at odds with their pop instincts. Ida's music has evolved into something generous and beautiful, a synthesis of folk, rock, blues, and world music that feels singularly their own. They have made a record that is uncompromising, complex, and emotionally resonant, with enough sonic detail and depth to reward repeated listening.”

Lovers and Prayers will be released January 29th on Polyvinyl Records. - David Pitz
