Sonically, Swedish singer and pipe organist Anna von Hausswolff seems to have adopted some of the musical sentiments of her father, the controversial experimental Swedish artist and musician, Carl Michael von Hausswolff. Her new record, Ceremony, contains several engrossing, haunting, and moody instrumental pieces. That said, von Hausswolff's music is also quite beautiful, particularly when she sings: von Hausswolff has a knack for crafting catchy melodies delivered with a soft precision that allows her voice to float above that deep organ.

Set List:

    • “Sun Rise”
    • “Mountains Crave”
    • “Liturgy of Light”
