Maple Glider, the project of Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch, has been quietly building up a following over the past year with a string of devastatingly beautiful indie-folk singles. Now, Zietsch is releasing her debut album, full of the same deft minimalist touch and intimate lyricism that makes her early singles so special. Fans of early Sharon Van Etten, Tomberlin, Cassandra Jenkins and Andy Shauf will love this! In her own (rather beautiful) words: “To me, To Enjoy is the Only Thing feels like walking past tinsel-covered trees in mid-September, swimming along the calanques in the south of France, frost on the hood of a car, darkness at 4pm, lightness until 10pm, Sibylle Baier’s Colour Green, Devendra Banhart’s Ma, Adrianne Lenker’s a-sides, a muted feeling, the perpetual grey fog that swallows the Silver Coast in Portugal, an ugly green dress, the color red, red wine, red blood, red lips, the red of a cardinal’s robe, Switzerland, my mother’s diaries, a coroner’s report, the sun on my face, the end of love.”
Available on CD, Indies Exclusive Green LP and Super-limited Dinked Edition
The Dinked Edition of To Enjoy Is The Only Thing is on 500 limited and hand-numbered green and lime marble LP with a double-sided photo print.
