The Ridge // Paper Bag

On Sarah Neufeld’s new album “The Ridge” she invokes images of nature and how we relate to it. The albums artwork gives you the initial imagery needed before diving into this beautiful work. Repetition does the rest. She uses repetition in such an incredible way, she holds you in an emotion as you listen until it builds enough to leave you with a lasting feeling of where the music transported you. Some songs conjure up an anxious feelings while others calm you, it’s a truly extraordinary feat to be able to pull that kind of emotion with nothing more than a violin, drums and a voice.
