The fleet-fingered harpist joined forces with another musician with tricky digits - Walt McClements - to make a sensational blend of accordion and strings that buck and swell like aural murmurations, teetering and tantalising with every flitting note and each swooping resonance.

It's a majestic space to uncoil knotted muscles and lose track of time within. Mary Lattimore and Walt McClements’ debut collaboration blossomed out of their time spent on the road together, capturing the liminal existence of touring life in deeply cinematic compositions. Recorded in the cozy setting of McClements’ apartment during a rainy December in LA, ‘Rain on the Road’ unfurls as a series of sonic vignettes, rolling landscapes hewn from longform improvisations for harp and accordion. Embellished with additional instrumentation such as the shimmering constellations of hand bells on ‘Stolen Bells’ that glisten like lights on wet pavement, or the stately piano figures on ‘The Top of Thomas Street’; their pastoral pieces manage to paint vivid images.
