Sala (live) 03:57


In the depths of quarantine, the three Briars collaborated from their disparate corners of North America (Vermont, Upstate NY, and Mexico City) to play simulated live versions of several songs from the band’s catalog. They chose three of their favorites from the last decade: “Jonah,” a stripped-down version of our favorite biblical whale story — “Sala,” a song written in Gideon's self-made language of H'reh that describes the unnamable landscape that is both impossibly far away and incredibly familiar — and “Same Old Lady,” a fuzzed-up version of the classic song about leaving the pain of New York for a bucolic life by a riverside mill.

It is being posted to honor the autumnal equinox. The audio is available as a “pay what you wish” release on Bandcamp and can watch it on YouTube and maybe some other places? Two of the new live recordings are songs drawn from their recent album SUPERMOON which was released this past June, near the summer solstice. Hear that album at
