Below is a commentary by the label.

"Recital releases the first vinyl edition of Let the Darkness Fall, a forgotten corner of Suzanne Langille and Loren Connors' extensive discography. David of the Atlanta-based group San Agustin・Darkness, in which Daniel and Andrew Burns participated, was released in the summer of 1998.Recorded in Suzanne Langille and Loren Connors' Brooklyn living room on a Tascam Porta 5, it was released on a limited CD by Secretly Canadian the following year.

Let the Darkness Fall's gentle gloom feels like a private séance broadcast.The trio's guitarist exhibits beautiful restraint, hovering just beneath vocalist Suzanne Langille's ephemeral lyrics.Once recording began, the players' sensibilities melted the quartet into a single entity, finishing each other's phrases in slow motion.Suzanne's gentle singing voice, along with quiet determination, illuminates the faint shadow of the guitar.You can almost imagine her building a nest from the guitar lines she has collected.

This collection of musicians was the forerunner of the band Haunted House, a kind of wild jam band that played blues without structure. Recital is proud to continue our series on Loren Connors, from his art books Wildweeds and Night of Rain to his masterpiece solo LPs Airs and Lullaby.Also, pay attention to Suzanne Langille's mysterious voice and words, and Andrew Burnes and David Daniell's intricate guitar work. Once again, the fog that filled that living room 25 years ago. "

Recital:

"Recital is pleased to publish the first vinyl edition of Let the Darkness Fall, a forgotten corner from the vast discography of Suzanne Langille & Loren Connors. Joined here by David Daniell and Andrew Burnes (of the Atlanta-based group San Agustin), Darkness was recorded in the summer of 1998 on a Tascam Porta-5 in Loren and Suzanne's Brooklyn living room, and issued the following year as a limited CD by Secretly Canadian.

The tender gloom of Let the Darkness Fall sounds like a broadcast of some private séance. The trio of guitarists here show a beautiful restraint, hovering just underneath vocalist Suzanne Langille's ephemeral poetry. Once they hit RECORD, the sensitivity of the players melded this quartet into a sole-entity; finishing each other's phrases in slow motion. Suzanne's gentle voice glows through the wispy guitar shadows with a quiet determination. One could almost imagine her building a nest out of the guitar lines she's gathered.

This collection of musicians is a precursor to the band Haunted House, a wild sort of jam-band playing the blues without playing structure. Recital is proud to continue the series of Loren Connors-related editions, stretching from his art books Wildweeds & Night of Rain, to his masterpiece solo LPs Airs & Lullaby. And Recital is equally thrilled to highlight Suzanne Langille's mystifying command of voice and word and the intricate guitar work of Andrew Burnes and David Daniell. Come revisit the mist that filled that living room 25 years ago ."
