About this album

Great music doesn’t need to be loud to be intoxicating. Subtlety often opens the doors of possibility, paving the path for groups like the Harvey Girls who craft each song with delicate inspiration from the world around them. With I’ve Been Watching A Lot Of Horror Movies Lately, the Portland-based husband-and-wife duo have released another mellow collection of well-crafted psychedelic folk songs that beg for multiple listens.

The album was recorded in the home of Harvey Girls’ Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke by live looping analog instruments through a digital loop station. Guitars, keys, drums (organic and digital) and synthesizers intertwine as the foundation is laid and sonic bricks are slowly piled high, culminating in the erection of little towers of ominous tone. But not only is each track thoughtfully constructed, the album is an entity with a beautiful ebb and flow that culminates with the blissful completion of “Alpha Invasion On Delta Waves (Lullaby of Brueghel).”

The arduous, time-consuming task of live looping testifies to the duo’s resiliency and dedication, which comes through in the beauty of their craft. What begins as the mere sounds of gallops and chirps diverts to directionless paths all leading to a singular destination. When the album is through you realize it doesn’t matter where it’s taken you, because the journey is often more intriguing than the endpoint.
