Memory Drawings are not your usual musicians who spend long months together, experimenting with endless possibilities and each other’s nerves. Besides some guest musicians every now and then, the Anglo-American group consists of Hood guitarist/multi-instrumentalist and sometime The Declining Winter main-man Richard Adams, Minneapolis-raised, Morocco-based hammered dulcimer player Joel Hanson and Lanterns on the Lake/Brave Timbers violinist Sarah Kemp. Despite being at least at three different places at the same time, the members of Memory Drawings have a remarkable pace of creativity. Today we are celebrating the release of their second feature album, ‘There Is No Perfect Place‘ – this time on Hibernate Recordings. For that very reason, we talked to Richard and Joel to see what they have been up to since they’ve released their first album, and to find out more about this unconventional way of working together as a group. Besides having the opportunity to check out some songs from the new album, you can also listen to a special compilation of influences made by Joel and Richard for the readers and listeners of Sounds Of A Tired City.
