Out of the glittering caverns of the soul crawls the newest album from FAUN FABLES. Light Of A Vaster Dark is a vibrant collection of songs and sounds excavated by songwriter DAWN MCCARTHY and supported by steadfast collaborator NILS FRYKDAHL of SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM. Light Of A Vaster Dark sparkles with fear, wonder and playfulness, elements that have been part of the tapestry of Faun Fables’ music woven slowly over the course of five previous records. Sonically, the album is full of life, reflecting the new arrivals in the world of Dawn and Nils with fresh sounds. The sound of Faun Fables, always grounded in traditional instrumentation, bursts with color but stands smoothly united as a whole. Amidst the solid, elemental structure of McCarthy and Frykdahl’s guitars and eclectic percussion whirl the violins of MEREDITH YAYANOS and the vocals and multi-instrumental touches of KIRANA PEYTON. CORNELIUS BOOTS’ driving bass clarinets and shakuhachi flutes and MARK STIKMAN’s rich harmonica tones complement the mass of sound, as well. McCarthy’s vocals are at the helm, leading the swirling hive through the air like a Valkyrie with the point of a blade. Preceding and following the release of Light Of A Vaster Dark, Dawn and Nils will head out with their family and RV heading all across North America. Catch them as a raw, electric duo or with a rotating selection of musical guests as they continue down the paths of our world and theirs. No Export to Europe.
