Multi-instrumentalist Lenni Green’s genre-defying December album, Where Did You Go?, was inspired by a friend’s battle with schizophrenia.
The album’s sounds encompass pensive guitar meditation, windswept synth grandeur, piano-led power balladry, and more, the sonic array revolving around a poignant emotional center. Closer “Awakening,” which, in Green’s words, represents “the catharsis of heavy emotions and the revolutionary acquisition of wisdom” after hardship, sets towering, five-part harmonies against a backdrop of rushing waterfalls, recorded directly from their source in the woods of PA. There are no lyrics, verses, or choruses on this one, just pure, transcendent spires of melody. Like a Julianna Barwick track on steroids, it transports you to entirely new realms.
