Her Stems Spiral - Princess Poured Out The Pale Winter Moon


I have been waiting for this record for a while now, and I feel that it was well worth the wait!

Her Stems Spiral is an avant-garde/shoegaze project started by Shannon Lawlor of the Johannesburg based post-rock band Eyes Likes Mirrors. It was created as an entity to explore the realms of experimental and unconventional song-writing.

Lyrics range from stories of the past, to mother nature’s revenge, and even some self-reflection. Shannon’s first effort titled “Princess Poured Out The Pale Winter Moon” was recorded in a small independent studio called MoodSwing, in Johannesburg, South Africa, from mid 2012 – early 2013 using a single condenser microphone, and limited to hardware/software. All vocals and instruments were were written and composed on the spot in studio.

All music and lyrics written & composed by [ Shannon Lawlor ]
[ Shannon Lawlor ] Vocals + lyrics, guitar, bass guitar, violin, piano, synthesizer & additional percussion and [ Matthew Watson ] All drums and additional percussion.Everything recorded, produced & mastered by Matthew Watson.
