** 2021 Stock ** Kath Bloom is renowned for her '80s private-press recordings with avant-garde guitarist Loren Connors, as well as the signature tune 'Come Here' from the soundtrack to Richard Linklater's film 'Before Sunrise'. Over the last 35 years, she has come to be revered around the world for her devastatingly emotional songwriting. Devendra Banhart has called her "one of the most beautiful singers ever", while Pitchfork says "she can snap a heart like a twig". 'Pass Through Here' features a distinctive new sound for Kath, uplifted by floating synthesizers and disembodied choruses, while retaining the direct simplicity and power for which she is loved. Songs are recorded in just a few takes, vocals are captured raw and honest, but the overall impression is as masterful as it is ramshackle and masterly. 'Pass Through Here' is emotional, uplifting, haunting and heartwarming songwriting from a master of the craft.
