Grapefruit Record Club Vinyl-only Very Limited Release

Until You Find Your Green was recorded at Laura’s farm house home over the course of a few weeks in April 2012. In a departure from the live performance approach of their previous two albums, At Home (2003) and Lonely Town (2008), Until You Find Your Green makes use of multi-track recording, allowing the sisters to experiment and embellish their music with additional instrumentation and the occasional field recording. Around a base of guitar and banjo, they’ve added currents of flute, cello, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, drums, vocalise, electric guitar, mockingbird and a chorus of crickets. All songs by Laura and Meg Baird except for “A Soldier Being Tired” (Traditional.)
