Belaver (former frontman of doom-folk band listenlisten) is the solo project of NYC-based experimental folk artist B.E. Godfrey. In 2014, Godfrey released 'Wild Desperation' featuring collaborations with country legend Robert Ellis and Deep Cuts' Chase Harris. Drawing on the dark lyricism of his work with listenlisten, Wild Desperation was a narrative take about murderous men.
Swimming Bell (8:30):
Swimming Bell is the recording name of Brooklyn-based songwriter Katie Schottland. Originally from Devon, PA, Katie moved to Brooklyn to attend acting school, but began writing songs when a broken foot left her immobile for months. A chance meeting with British songwriter/producer Oli Deakin (Lowpines) led to a collaboration that formed her debut EP 'The Golden Heart', released in October 2017. The Huffington Post described it as "...charming and delightful, full of infectious melodies, shimmering harmonies and pungent, pulsing rhythms".
Swimming Bell toured throughout the US and in the UK through spring 2018, before embarking on her first full length record, 'Wild Sight'. Working again with Oli Deakin as producer and collaborator, the album was recorded in various locations in London, Leeds and Brooklyn, and then final mixing done in Hoboken by Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth).
