Artist/Band: Chelsea Wolfe
Album: "Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs"
Release Date: October the 16th, 2012
Label: Sargent House

Northern California native Chelsea Wolfe's sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk—a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. Her voice similarly haunts and soothes, with words that illuminate life's darker corners in order to reveal the unlikely truth and beauty hidden within.

Since 2009, Wolfe has mixed electric blues and folk with an eye on the dark side. Stripping her sound down to acoustic guitar and strings, her third album contains "once-orphaned" songs with only the essential elements.

The experience is a secret shared, a side of the singer rarely seen or heard, and the making was as intimate as it gets: recorded in the woods of Northern California and at Wolfe's L.A. home, co-produced by her bandmate Ben Chisholm, with players Ezra Buchla of Gowns (viola), Andrea Calderón of Corima (violin) and Daniel Denton of Gothic Tropic (bass).

Moaned like a warped Southern gospel hymn, "The Way We Used To" opens with Chelsea Wolfe's voice — and she's got soul like she's just lost a part of it. Operating at a funereal pace, the gently swinging brushed drums trail behind Wolfe's mourning, sounding as if they were recorded in a lost hallway. The same goes for the lilting electric guitar somewhere in the background, barely heard over the hurt.
