Renowned Philadelphia producer Jeff Zeigler and harpist Mary Lattimore join together for new album Slant Of Light; hear The White Balloon below

We have long lauded Jeff Zeigler's production over here at the Quietus, so we were all ears when we got wind of a new collaboration between the Pennsylvania native and harpist Mary Lattimore, in the form of Slant Of Light due out on September 22 via Thrill Jockey. Have a listen to our first spin of 'The White Balloon' from the record above.

The duo agree that out of their many collaborations - put together, they've worked with Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Meg Baird, Wrekmeister Harmonies and A Sunny Day In Glasgow to name a few - this was the "most effortless", and 'The White Balloon' oozes just that. With its incandescence and ethereal texture, this impressionist piece feels like it inhabits a world of its own, a feeling which may stem from Zeigler and Lattimore shutting themselves away to record the album during the intense snowstorm that hit Philadelphia earlier this year. Pre-order 'Slant Of Light' here.
