    22nd June! Oracles! Oracles! Oracles! It will be released on vinyl, CD and download on Gearbox Records.

    Got front row centre for the launch gig in the beautiful Purcell Room.

    So happy with all of this!!!!

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Cannot wait for Oracles! I was so bummed when the original video got taken off of YouTube.

    Oracle EPK; this is going to be so lovely! I'm trying not to listen to too much before I listen in full because it doesn't seem like the kind of album to pick apart into pieces, but the clips here sound amazing.

    Just got Oracles in the mail; I'm trying to find a good uninterrupted chance to listen to it in full. I cheated and listened to ~30 seconds of Catherine Wheels and I was already on the verge of tears - I definitely need to save this for some guaranteed alone time!

    Did anyone else listen yet? What am I in for?

    Emotions.

    Unsurprisingly it is on heavy rotation here. It is stunning, deeply moving and Ana's vocal performance is breathtaking.

    I listen, am left unable to listen to anything else for a while, and then listen again.

    I had a long walk home from the theater last night so I had a listen to the album straight through - totally stunning throughout, and then that one-two punch of I Grew Up In A Room, Small As A Penny and Catherine Wheels is just incredible. I already said it in the Favorite Song of the Day thread, but Catherine Wheels gives me serious Gold Dust vibes - not just the wistful, nostalgic tone, but the way the strings interact with the piano during the instrumental portions. Her voice on the entire album is amazing, and a step up even from The Aviary. One of my albums of the year for sure.

    In the long run, this will probably join Sonya Cotton's brilliant album It Is So (interestingly a similarly-themed album about the loss of her mother) as a go-to album to listen to while I fall asleep (though maybe I should explore why music about grief is my ideal lullaby).

    It's glorious! I will probably have more coherent stuff to say later but for now it's just glorious.
