After entertaining millions of fans with their 10 major-label studio albums, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have come full circle with the independent release of their new album, Poseidon and the Bitter Bug on their new label IG Recordings distributed through Vanguard Records. These ten songs, five by Ray and five by Saliers, retain the indelible melodies and silvery harmonies that have become their trademark, but they also display the growth of two intelligent, empathetic artists devoted to always evolving in their craft....While Saliers’ and Ray’s mood may have been reflective, the atmosphere in the studio was urgent and lively. The duo barreled through the recording process in three weeks flat in Atlanta with longtime bassist Clare Kenny, session-pro drummer Matt Chamberlain, engineer David Boucher, and veteran producer, arranger, and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, all of whom worked on Despite Our Differences. “There wasn't time for lot of belaboring over decision-making so it was very much an in-the-moment recording, which I found exhilarating,” Saliers says. As a result, a certain intimacy and vulnerability crept in, Ray says, “because there was no time to second-guess ourselves and make everything super correct. We had to trust our instincts.”
