Visible Voice is an indie music blog that does a really great job of covering the Seattle music scene as well as the scene happening in Boston and the East Coast. After a couple of behind closed door meetings with the man behind Visible Voice, Adam Richert, we decided to join forces in order to bring you, the reader, what you want: more in-depth music coverage. =============
Walking into Ravenna Woods' Seattle house/practice space/recording studio was pretty surreal. We quickly realized that this was not a house at all, it was a creative dungeon. It was a place to eat, sleep, drink, and produce music.
The band welcomed us to catch a glimpse into their jam session. We first started to roll the cameras in a bedroom on the top floor where they had never played before. Although the band sounded great we decided to relocate to their basement (practice/recording space). The basement was draped in rugs, posters, and various trinkets that made it feel less "cold", it was clearly the beating heart of the house. While the band is fairly laid back, lead singer and guitar player Chris Cunningham is a driving force of intensity that bears his dark side throughout his lyrics.
Their much anticipated album The Jackal is available November 12! It is a true representation of the band's balanced sensibility. The Jackal is perfectly produced to exemplify the purity of their sound, which is refreshing in a time when music is being ransacked by computers and producers who want to leave their "mark."
