Grown from the halls of NYU and cultivated in the Montreal studio of producer/engineer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, British Sea Power), Ravens & Chimes' debut album, Reichenbach Falls, weaves a magical blend of eclectic instrumentation, ear-grabbing percussion, and superb musicianship. Among the instruments used to build each complex track are the mandolin, glockenspiel, harmonium and a handmade theremin, resulting in a carnival of sights and sounds oozing with effervescent ambience. Reichenbach Falls encompasses the raw quality of youth in a split open-heart combination of first lust, disappointment and self-doubt.
