Michael Reilly An honest, warm and very mature collection of alt-country pop gems. You can hear the natural acoustics of the cathedral studio in all these tracks, which adds weight to the tales told. Favorite track: Valentine.

about

Perfect Halves is the second long-player from the Ashtray Hearts. The album was recorded at Sacred Heart Studios, a landmark nineteenth century cathedral overlooking Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. Recording at the old church during a typical cold and snowy Duluth winter proved to be ideal for the creation of this subtle assembly of wounded songs. On Perfect Halves, the band continues to refine the lush textures first explored on their debut. Recorded on vintage analog equipment, these recordings capture the Ashtray Hearts as they were meant to sound, with the added warmth and natural reverb offered by the high ceilings of Sacred Heart. The songs, written and refined over three years, explore the timeless themes of love and loss.
