We owe Rachel Grimes big. With a proliferation of neo-classicists now banging on the eardrums of indie kids everywhere, it’s easy to forget the impact her chamber music ensemble, Rachel’s, made on the guitar-dominated dominions of alternative music in the mid-90s. Arguably, without her and the group to which she lent her name, artists like Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson and even Sigur Rós would not have found such a wide and receptive audience. It’s only with the album’s longest piece, the almost Charlemagne Palestine-esque like shimmer of Mossgrove, that the album’s fragile spell is almost broken. But it’s a momentary diversion and a distinctive tributary which ably demonstrates Grimes’ growing versatility and development as an artist. Book of Leaves is simply an absorbing turn from a true pioneer. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence.

It's fitting that Rachel Grimes' Book of Leaves would come out so close to winter. This season effects not only the cost of the Average Joe's electric bill, but it effects many social lives. The cold weather outside prevents one from partaking in all the things one enjoys; the comforting presence of others is oftentimes lost, and one is left in solitude. While some will struggle with making their loneliness a benefit, others like like Grimes will not, and Book of Leaves is proof. Grimes' debut, solo, neo-classical album is an instrumental work
