Chase Tornato Both the songs and the production are beautiful. Lyrics are distinct and I can't immediately think of other songs like it. Background vocals reminds me of old Brazilian bossa nova. Favorite track: Aurora.

Stevie Upon revisiting Eleanor on a tour, I thought at first -- being an addict of hyperactive electronic music -- I might not like her newer, calmer, more introspective style.

But this recording let me really focus on the memorable melodies and moods. The timbres are so perfectly warm and pure, the arrangements so simple yet dead on. Like a thick blanket alone with its own thoughts. Favorite track: Virginia.

about

eleanor murray Olympia, Washington

Informed by folk tradition while adhering to no rules, Eleanor Murray’s music exists in a genre all its own. Her latest outing, Bury Me Into the Mtn, is an album that is structurally complicated, while full of warmth and light. Her songs draw as much from Appalachia as they do from jazz, with lyrics that are cryptic while simple and straightforward. The album’s landscape is completely its own. ... more
