Jenny Gillespie's new EP Belita is an intoxicating blend of folk, indie pop and post-rock, produced by Jenny and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily (Jolie Holland, Bonnie Prince Billy, Lou Reed.) In 2011, Gillespie had already self-produced 2 albums, the lush chamber folk of Light Year (2009) and the ambient progressive pop of Kindred (2010). After these musical journeys and turning thirty, Gillespie became more and more drawn to acoustic-based music, returning to the sound she first loved when she first picked up a guitar as a teenager. She wanted to strip things down, while maintaining a slanted, atmospheric element to her work, and spent time learning covers of Vashti Bunyan, Bert Jansch and Neil Young, and studying African and fingerpicking-style guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music. Meeting by chance via a YouTube cover Gillespie performed of Sam Amidon's Saro, Ismaily, Amidon's longtime bandmate, contacted Jenny to share his appreciation of her version. From there a conversation grew about a possible collaboration, and Gillespie traveled from her hometown of Chicago to New York City to record a new work with Ismaily over the course of 2 weeks. They discovered common north stars of their musical vocabulary (Vashti Bunyan, Mark Kozelek, Joni Mitchell's Hejira, and Ali Farke Toure, among others) and decided they would create something that truly featured Gillespie's unique acoustic guitar playing, set often to open tunings inspired by Gillespie's most beloved influence, Joni Mitchell. The resulting EP, featuring turns by Amidon on back up vocals, Marc Ribot (Tom Waits) on electric guitar, is a nuanced and modern approach to the folk genre--globally influenced, but intimately rendered, with precise yet imaginative instrumentation; the listener will wander into and find new surprises, over repeated listens.
