Wrekmeister Harmonies’ new album, The Alone Rush, their first as the core duo of JR Robinson and Esther Shaw, is a hauntingly intense and dark meditation on death and isolation, whose concise compositions carry an emotional heft without the orchestrated bombast of their previous four albums.

After confronting the dual tragedies of the death of a loved one and the exhaustive experience of caring for another family member with a chronic illness, Robinson and Shaw removed themselves from the intensity of Chicago living to the seclusion of Astoria, Oregon. With little else besides their instruments, the couple focused on just two things: healing their psychic wounds and composing. Robinson likened this period to a “cult like affair, just the two of us, thinking the similar thoughts and working them out with hours and hours of conversation, totally alone.” After spending two years in their remote surroundings, together in almost every endeavor, Robinson and Shaw developed an especially intuitive musical communication. Says Robinson it was “almost like two stones being put in a small bag and being carried around constantly. The rough edges wear away. What seemed claustrophobic reveals itself to be comfort.”
