A Stick And A Stone - Versatile


This is a fascinating one. A Stick And A Stone is a dark ambient project in the vein of projects like Emma Ruth Rundle and Chelsea Wolfe. The record is inspired by both life as a trans person and the beauty of rural Oregon. It's an intensely personal record that drips of sublime beauty and every gorgeously produced layer seems to constantly hint at new things to come from the project. It is a unique and potent offering that will pluck the heart strings and shine a light on a distinct and underappreciated struggle. 

Versatile is also interesting because of the diverse layers of guest musicians that are brought in. With a special focus on string instruments, but also crystal glass and lever harps decorating the music it is clear that A Stick And A Stone are in a league of their own. This is a band who embrace the deeply personal power of music. The mournful, almost sobbed vocals on 'Timelapse' are truly powerful. It is no coincidence that this song is one of the strongest on the record. Versatile will pull at your heart strings and guide the listener through iconoclastic sonic worlds. All this being said - Versatile is not an inaccessible record, if anything it is a very human one. 

This is a truly exciting offering and one that you're guaranteed to get lost in. Versatile is full of deep emotions and crushing power. There is a strange poetry to the record that will resonate with listeners for days on end. A Stick And A Stone will leave audiences across the world scraping their jaws off the floor. Versatile is a triumph for the Portland music scene and will enchant you. Cast aside your barriers. Let yourself sink into this music. Versatile is one of the most beautifully human offerings I have heard in a good long while.
