[audio:] Petracovich – “Heaven Help the Day”

Crepusculo is the brand new third album from Petracovich, the musical identity of Santa Rosa’s Jessica Peters. Like Peters’ other works, the album is guided by strong vocals and moving lyrics layered atop lush musical textures, but there’s a notable shift in emphases from electronic textures toward more organic sound. The new collection is also inescapably personal since it was written and recorded while Jessica was pregnant with her son Otto Charles. Jessica’s son tragically passed away eight days after he was born and Crepusculo was put aside for a year. Now seeing release, it’s an inspiring and emotionally powerful CD.
