“Laurel Halo presents six instrumental pieces that form a meditative, cinematic listening experience. Inspired by recent film score work for Metahaven and Ursula Le Guin's translation of the 'Tao Te Ching'. Featuring cello work by Oliver Coates and percussion by Eli Keszler.

Working in abstraction leads to a deeper longing for touch and closeness. The tactile sensation of struck organ keys and bowed strings, wood and felt on drum heads. Smoke and dirt and stone. Febrile and tactile, hairy and hissy. A clover of highway onramps, a continuous flow, like old leaves melting on their way down a stream at the back of a house. Constant contradiction, the truth's nowhere.” – Bandcamp

“Halo’s music often rewards listeners who sit with it long enough to untangle all its knots. Raw Silk Uncut Wood marks a departure from her usual mode of thorny, cerebral electronic compositions, but as her most ambient record to date, it also boasts some of her most unabashedly beautiful music. The closing measures of “Nahbarkeit” feel like a revelation of sorts, a moment of surrender after so much searching. More than her previous albums, Raw Silk pursues a cohesive, linear narrative structure. It doesn’t aim to unseat the listener’s frame of reference, only to follow its own threads to the end.” – Pitchfork
