Courtship Ritual: Kingdom of Beauty
on 26 October 2014
Courtship Ritual can be spotted performing their restrained tunes with an equally minimal setup in Brooklyn venues like Baby's All Right—regularly joined on stage by hired belly dancers whose hypnotic choreography enhance the otherworldly mood. "Kingdom of Beauty" is a particularly poignant track that demonstrates Monica Salazar's covetable vocal timbre, along with her and guitarist Jared Olmsted's penchant for augmenting sparseness to great effect. Courtship Ritual released their debut album Pith this past summer on family label GODMODE, who hosted an unofficial showcase at Babycastles on Friday along with Driftless Recordings.
