Ryan Keane Where do I start, Midwife (aka Sister Grotto) pulls at the heart strings like no other. This album is huge for her, imbued with the catchiness of Beach House, the tender patience of Cocteau Twins, and the fiery delivery of Scout Niblett. Yet each downtrodden anthem tears at the soul like only Madeline is capable of. We should all be so lucky to own this on vinyl! Gorgeous! Favorite track: Song for an Unborn Sun.

221604records A friend shared this record with me and I've ordered it on the basis of the two tracks here. From the first chords of song from an unborn sun I was totally captivated. Cannot wait to hear the full record. Favorite track: Song for an Unborn Sun.

about

Under the name Sister Grotto, Denver based artist Madeline Johnston explores the limits of minimalism in transcendental drone-pop. With "Like Author, Like Daughter", Johnston uses the Midwife moniker to craft triumphant, fist-in-the-air anthems that tackle themes of dislocation and falling in (and out) of love with a person, a home and yourself.

"Like Author, Like Daughter" is a portrait of Johnston’s last year as a resident of Denver’s famed D.I.Y venue Rhinoceropolis which closed in a rash of politically motivated assaults on creative spaces across the United States. The album internalizes loss, addiction, abandonment and wrings them through distorted power chords, powerful leads, sheets of drone to create building, aching monuments to past-selves and lost relationships into a positivist statement of resilience and self-love. It’s a record that is impossible to listen to without a lump in your throat.

Performed, recorded and co-produced by Tucker Theodore (Buffalo Voice, Gunmothers Head), "Like Author, Like Daughter" was recorded in Denver at Rhinoceropolis and INAMBULANCE in Olympia, WA. LA,LD will be released with companion split cassette with Planning for Burial.
