Bridget Hayden + Ecka Mordecai + C.O.P/TL

No Longer Available

Bridget Hayden is a Todmorden-based musician & rural conjurer noted for her participation with free-form noise rock acts such as Sunburned Hand of The Man, Vibracathedral Orchestra, Schisms & Bong..

Her best work however, is when her phantasmic voice is left to waltz solitarily with her own guitar or piano accompaniment. Bridget’s solo output is somewhat difficult to define, often falling into and swinging in-between the static-haze perplexity between words and worlds. Aching, yearning folk abstractions drift and swing between blistering, swelling guitar-crackle ecstatic fire, paradoxically concussing and elucidating. Ghost music for the living, breathing and feeling.

Some may draw comparisons to Grouper, The Space Lady, Cindy Lee, & Les Rallizes Denudes.
