SCOTT I had gotten "Hope" on vinyl directly from Gizeh, and it's nice to have these familiar yet reworked tunes here on Bandcamp. George M. of Sound in Silence has done it again--the hand-tied fabric bag is a great presentation for this CD! (High-quality materials for all his releases.) "From a Mountain" feels like I'm reading poetry while sitting in the shade on a warm and hazy autumn afternoon... Favorite track: From A Mountain.

about

Sound In Silence is happy to announce the addition of Brave Timbers to its roster of artists, presenting their new album entitled Secret Hopes.

Brave Timbers started as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Sarah Kemp, member of Memory Drawings, Last Harbour, Lanterns On The Lake, Anna Kashfi and The Declining Winter and guest violinist on recording of Epic45, Library Tapes, Fieldhead and many others.
Her debut album For Every Day You Lost came out in 2010 by Second Language label and quickly sold out of its limited release. Later the project expanded into a duo, based in Newcastle, UK, with the addition of fellow multi-instrumentalist Andrew Scrogham, sometime Kemp’s bandmate in Lanterns On The Lake, and their second album Hope came out in early 2016 as a co-release of Gizeh Records and Little Crackd Rabbit. The first copies of first two albums were accompanied by a bonus remix release, the first with Woodwork 3’’ disc EP and the second with Hope (Remixed) album, including interpretations by Fieldhead, The Declining Winter, Epic45, Chihei Hatakeyama, RxGibbs, The Green Kingdom and others.
Brave Timbers have played shows alongside Amiina, Epic45, The Declining Winter, P. Jorgensen and others, contributed tracks to compilations released by Hibernate Recordings and Second Language, and also reworked a track by Yuri Lugovskoy.

Secret Hopes is a wonderful collection of exclusive new tracks in conjunction with reworked versions of tracks from the highly acclaimed Hope album which was released earlier this year. The new tracks were recorded during the Hope sessions, a really creatively intense and productive period for Brave Timbers, and were intended for this album but missed the cut late in the day. The reworked tracks came as a result of following an invitation from national Australian Radio ABC to do a couple of session tracks for a radio show. This invitation gave the duo the impetus to look again at a number of tracks trying something quite different, so they not only recorded two tracks for this radio session but finally reworked about half of the tracks of Hope album which they present on Secret Hopes.
The minimal instrumental compositions of Secret Hopes largely fall into the realms of ambient, neo-classical and chamber folk. With an elegant arrangement and a sound palette that includes layers of ethereal violins, delicate piano, finger picked tenor guitar, warm harmonium swells and pizzicato strings, Secret Hopes is a relaxing album that carefully builds its wistful and pastoral mood.
The mastering of Secret Hopes has been done by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), giving a deep majestic warmth to its sounds.
Secret Hopes is a musical gem highly recommended for devotees of Rachel’s, Peter Broderick, Balmorhea and Dustin O’Halloran.

Secret Hopes comes in two distinct editions.

The first one is a deluxe super-limited edition of just 50 handmade, hand-stamped and hand-numbered collectible copies. The disc of this edition includes an exclusive eighth bonus track called Unfurl, not included in the other edition or the digital download. It is packaged in a lovely sewn fabric envelope, which includes a 4 panel insert sheet containing tracklist and information printed on a 190 gsm mocha brown cardboard and the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper. It also comes bundled with a download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.
