After launching a successful crowd-funding campaign and raising over $10k, Vermont-based band Alpenglow teamed up with us to record their debut album which was subsequently released as two EPs. The first release, titled Solitude, came out in the fall of 2013 and the second, titled Chapel, was pressed to vinyl and released in October of 2014 and was followed by a tour of the band performing in chapels throughout the Northeast region of the United States.
The music was recorded between our studios at Signal Kitchen and on-location with a mobile rig at Mead Chapel in Middlebury, VT. The 700-seat chapel set the vibe of the recordings and was the setting for the capture of piano, strings, guitar, percussion, and even some sessions with the Middlebury boys’ choir. The group combines strong elements of folk traditions with a palette of delicate and melodic rock with psychedelic tendencies to create vast washes of glowing harmony that has become their signature sound.
