Quiet River Of Dust Vol.2: That Side of the River

Released on June 21, 2019

Richard Reed Parry’s Quiet River of Dust: an album in two parts, the first volume of which comes out on 2018’s autumn equinox, Sept. 21. It’s an album that began when the member of Arcade Fire found himself in Japan, wandering through a forest of ghosts, who sang his past back to him. It’s about a rainstorm that starts and never ends, and a boy dissolves into a body of water. Inspired by English folk, Japanese death poems and psychedelic experimentalism, Quiet River of Dust Vol.1 is what happens when late-20th century avant-garde composition meets traditional songcraft with haunting harmonies, written and performed by a member of a Grammy-winning rock band. A widescreen experience where layered songs move in a linear fashion, following a current rather than circular composition. It’s music meant to be absorbed in a sitting, devoid of other distractions, not shuffled into your streaming playlist. It’s about “the experience of transcending the place that you’re in, getting lost in the feeling of where you end and where the world begins, in a dreamlike world of music and thought,” says Parry. Featuring members of The National, Little Scream, the Sadies, Blonde Redhead and Cibo Matto.
