Solo experi-folk by Zachary Corsa of Lost Trail. Originally released on Patient Sounds. Digital edition now comes with a bonus EP of outtakes!

"Soy fan de Pines. es como cuando de repente apareció aquel disco invisible de Siren que se titulaba 'living light', o cuando conocimos a Rafi Bookstaber. esa sensación de encontrarte ante algo muy cercano, algo tan entrañable y minúsculo como que un sello se llame Humito. para haceros una idea de lo bonito que es sólo diré tres nombres: Serfs, Bruce Langhorne y Reedbeds. hay un banjo, guitarras, un dulcimer (y un búho), percusión, piano, voces casi imperceptibles empapadas del espíritu Smithsonian Folkways y Cabin Floor Esoterica (preciosísima 'dowsing rod', casi tanto como 'black allagash veil' y 'the owl and the dulcimer'), field recordings, samples y loops. y una portada y un nombre que hace honor a lo que hay dentro. lo que siempre había buscado en Lost Trail...ojalá que vengan muchos discos más de Pines." - Microphones In The Trees

"A mysterious lo-fi atmosphere. Ideal for summer nights." - Presage

"A Spirit is a wondrous melodic journey through a haunted forest, with Corsa branching out onto the banjo and toy dulcimer as well as his usual guitar, piano, loops, and field recordings." - The Ephemeral Man

"...The atmosphere is gentle, inquisitive, possibly even frail in its skeletal delay and clean, creased decay. Notes creak like boards on a white porch at sunset. Roads bleed in the dark, seeping warmth into the brighter melodies. Beauty is fleeting, and the melodies subsequently erode. Sometimes, the melody reverses and scratches at the music, violent claws deep within the drone and its comforting womb...The gentle loops reverse in what is an unexpectedly tight turn. They are sharp branches that cut you without warning. The guitar is softly laminated with a lush delay, creating some much needed space, some reflection. ...The layers of reverb and delay lead to chill out moments where the guitars swoon in an endless, scribbled circle. A sweet light surrounds the music, a golden late-evening ember in the sky...This should be your summer retreat..because among the low hanging branches and amid the pine scented perfume, the view is pretty much perfect." - A Closer Listen
