geophrian An amazing talent. Loved her music since the Esmerine days and she continues to evolve and explore new and elegant realms in her music. Favorite track: This Is Our Lives.

ajpoet Composed of equal parts grief and determination (apt for an album whose royalties are donated to support climate action), "Waxing Moon" is compelling. Organic and epic, with intimate vocals on many tracks, this is life-affirming music, somewhere between post-post-rock and chamber music for the anthropocene. Favorite track: Pour.

robtamps There's a formal archness to Rebecca Foon's first solo album which marks it out from the work of her warmer and more intimate other bands. Enigmatic, icy and austere post rock - exactly what I like in other words - and even though I find it pushes me away when I listen, I keep coming back over and again. An enigma! Favorite track: Wide Open Eyes.

about

ALL WAXING MOON ROYALTIES SHALL BE DONATED TO PATHWAY TO PARIS AND ITS 1000 CITIES INITIATIVE FOR CARBON FREEDOM.

Rebecca Foon, the composer and musician behind Saltland and Esmerine (and former longstanding member of Silver Mt. Zion) presents a new album entitled Waxing Moon. While best known as an incomparable cellist (and more recently, as a cofounder of Pathway To Paris) this collection of songs finds Foon emphasizing piano and voice with striking intimacy and elegance, showcasing a profoundly captivating evolution in her always resplendent songwriting.

With Waxing Moon, Rebecca is setting aside the Saltland moniker – her electronically-tinged string-centric project from the past five years – and will release this more personal new work under her own name. The album's ten songs are predominantly minimal and delicate, immersive and hauntingly beautiful – with vocal-driven tracks booked-ended by piano-based instrumentals, along with one up-tempo guitar-driven number ("Wide Open Eyes") that closes out Side One. While piano figures most prominently on the record, Foon continues to play cello on several tracks, complemented by gentle touches from a close coterie of musical guests including Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire) and Mishka Stein (Patrick Watson) on acoustic and electric basses, Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You Black Emperor) on violin, Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes) on electric guitar, and Patrick Watson as co-vocalist on the dreamlike "Vessels". Foon co-produced the album with Lasek at Montréal's Breakglass studio and it sounds glorious.

Waxing Moon is Rebecca Foon's first eponymous album and a glimmeringly full-hearted new chapter in her celebrated musical catalog. Thanks for listening.
