Free Music Weekend! Chelsea Wolfe - "Flatlands"

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.

In 2013, Wolfe will deliver her as-yet-untitled official third album, which will expand upon the acoustic record's themes: the elements and natural disasters, humanity, love, desolation. At the same time, the new full-length will mark a significant change as Wolfe and Chisholm (who makes glitched goth-soul as Revelator) bring more electronic elements into the fold. Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta, Marnie Stern) will be on hand to produce the LP, which will also feature the other members of Wolfe's live wrecking crew, guitarist Kevin Dockter and drummer Dylan Fujioka.
