Chris Pureka (US): New signing on Haldern Pop Recordings & Tour Dates

chrispureka875

Dear Haldern Pop friends,

We are really happy to announce that Chris Pureka is a new member of the Haldern Pop Recordings-family. Originally US-released in 2010, her album “How I Learned To See In The Dark” will be now officially available in Europe for the first time. Releasedate is February, 21st, 2014. Also in February Chris Pureka will come over and start an extensive European tour, she likely will play live in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, France, UK and Italy.

“Songtitles like “Wrecking Ball,” “Shipwreck” and “Landlocked” sum up the tone of Chris Pureka’s third full-length album, “How I Learned to See in the Dark”, a testament to bitter longing and the ravages of lost love. (…) Pureka works the folk circuit, and the measured strumming and stark picking of her acoustic guitar are at the center of most songs, flanked by Appalachian-tinged fiddle and a snare drum played with brushes. But she and her producer — Merrill Garbus, a.k.a Tune-yards — aren’t ascetic. Electric guitar, pedal steel or bowed bass turn up in the background, just enough to widen and deepen the emotional chasms.” – New York Times
