Recorded on a bedroom four-track partially in the hazy heat of summer and completed in the midst of a blizzard, From Another Room is a collection of carefully constructed and confessional tracks that document The Vale's beginnings as both artistic and romantic partners. Withdrawn whispers blanketed in washes of delay, detuned utterances offered without hope, adulterine desires obscured by the oppressive and constant presence of tape hiss - the album is enigmatically defined by both its confessional immediacy and sonic obscurity, and extended to you on the same medium which brought it into existence.
