Time Was, by Zomes

We all know and love Asa Osborn from the now-legendary Lungfish, but up until Time Was, his Zomes project could be a bit esoteric, what with the muddy recordings and static song structures. The brilliant Time Was clears the lo-fi cobwebs away on Zomes' dreamy repetitions and adds a new collaborator, Swedish vocalist Hanna Olivegren, to the mix. Osborn provides the pithy organ riffs and spartan beats while Olivegren offers up hauntingly beautiful melodies and expressive vocalizations that show us just how much the human voice can do.
