My new Northern Flicker album Rituals is out today. Obviously I did not anticipate this happening in the middle of a pandemic, but what can you do.
When I was wrapping up work on this album at the end of 2019, I felt a strange urgency, like I needed to get it done then because things were changing so fast. I’d wanted to make music that captured the feeling of life as it has been for the last few years. I think I managed to do that, at least for myself, and maybe for some other people.
I had a short run of CD-Rs printed up, but given the current situation I’m not really wanting to mail out physical items. So for now, feel free to listen to it on any of your favorite streaming sites, download the album from Bandcamp if you want to, and if you want a CD I’ll make them available later on.
