Rallidae – Turned, and Was

CD & digital released 11/18/16

Turned, and Was is the first full-length album from Angela Morris’ group Rallidae. With Rallidae, Morris displays her love for melody and noise, releasing singable songs into improvised habitats. Turned, and Was is an invocation of those moments of quiet transformation that are perpetually turning us into who we are, and have been, all along. The album’s nine tracks range from short one-minute bursts of small, intimate sound to expansive pieces of songwriting, with most lyrics by Morris.

Rallidae is guitarist Dustin Carlson, bassist Scott Colberg, Angela Morris on tenor saxophone and voice, and vocalist Alex Samaras. Drummer Nico Dann appears on seven of the album’s tracks.
