- A Tear In The Eye Is A Wound In The Heart
- Artist: Black Prairie
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 9/18/2012
Vinyl LP pressing. Sugar Hill Records will release a Tear in the Eye Is a Wound in the Heart... The second album by Black Prairie, the exploratory, back-porch ensemble founded by the Decemberists Chris Funk, Nate Query and Jenny Conlee. Produced by Tucker Martine, Tear in the Eye... is the follow up to Feast of the Hunter's Moon, and the first Black Prairie album to primarily feature vocalist Annalisa Torn felt. Written collaboratively by all band members, the album feels cinematic and familiar; Torn felt's gentle, classic country-inspired singing is connected to the band's Baltic-Appalachian instrumentals by strange, orchestral interludes. The record is an evolution of the band's love of instrumental, Italian film score weirdness and the venerable, forgotten roots of American and Eastern European folk.
