Margo Cilker's Debut Album 'Pohorylle' Out Today
Friday, 5th November 2021
We're extremely excited to finally share with you the debut album from Oregon singer-songwriter Margo Cilker. Titled 'Pohorylle', the album is a beautiful scrapbook of 9 songs written from time spent on the road - a collection of stories from the dive bars and small towns of rural America to the warm glow of the Spain's Basque Country.
“a dazzling full length debut - Pohorylle is classic Americana, awash with grace wisdom and allusive wordplay"
Americana Album Of The Month
“Imagine Gillian Welch at The Band’s sessions with Allen Toussaint, and you’re close to the charm of this new Americana voice”
To bring these songs to life, Margo recruited ex Band of Horses drummer and Sub Pop alumni Sera Cahoone alongside a first-rate band including Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) on keys, Jason Kardong (Sera Cahoone, Son Volt) on pedal steel, Rebecca Young (Lindsey Fuller, Jesse Sykes) on bass, Mirabai Peart (Joanna Newsom) on strings, Kelly Pratt (Beirut) on horns, and the album’s engineer John Morgan Askew (Neko Case, Laura Gibson) on an array of other instruments.
Pohorylle is out now on LP, CD and digitally, available to buy in the Loose shop.
