are Anna-Lynne Williams ( Trespassers William/Lotte Kestner
) and Robert Gomez, and Cartographer/Explorer is the Seattle band’s second album, following on from 2012’s Machine which garnered keen praise on both sides of the Atlantic for its delicate acoustic songwriting. Individually, the two members of Ormonde have impressive CVs: Williams toured with Damien Rice
, Broken Social Scene
and Explosions in the Sky
during her time in Trespassers William (Nettwerk Records) and also co-wrote and sang Hold Tight London on Chemical Brothers
’ Push the Button album. Gomez is a respected producer/multi-instrumentalist who has worked with John Grant
and Sarah Jaffe
and was previously signed to Bella Union
. Ormonde, however, is where the two locate their shared vision, and it’s a spellbinding place to spend some time.
