Under Grape Leaves
In André Ethier’s remarkable Under Grape Leaves, a world emerges in an out of focus blur under the dappled green light of a backyard arbor. This collection of songs offers a kind of escape, but the invitation is less about checking out than it is about checking in. The record feels like a surreal and subtle manifesto for embracing radical domesticity in the midst of the modern storm, which here is just a distant synthetic rumble in the background.
