"Her tracks are testaments to the power of things that are not physically there — friends who become ghosts, emotions unspoken." Pitchfork
Tiny Viper’s 'Life on Earth' was first released on vinyl in 2009, is out of stock for years and has since become a collector’s item. The album is now available on 2LP vinyl in a special limited edition, for Europe it is exclusively available via the LEITER store.
After releasing her first album under the moniker Tiny Vipers, 2007’s 'Hands Across the Void', Seattle-based musician Jesy Fortino had been back and forth across Europe, on tours into and through the United States, transfixing audiences into a solemn hush. Transcending the mere folk tag (“She’s not telling stories; she’s after incantation and trance” — New York Times), Fortino draws from disparate inspirational sources, from the avant-garde or from country musician Townes Van Zandt. Recordings for her sophomore album began at home and were then interpreted by Andrew Hernandez in a classic analog studio in Austin, TX. Retaining both the glow of her work on guitar and the strength of her voice, Hernandez has captured the organic nature mirrored in the concepts of the album. 'Life on Earth' gives musical life to those themes that inhabit her lyricisms: love found and lost, places come and gone. The future annihilates the past, consuming it like a fire. A shining hope permeates the threat of doom here. Desperation fades and leaves you free in the end.
