In the post-rock outfit Red Sparowes, Emma Ruth Rundle wields her guitar like glacial force of nature. She’s explored other sounds in her projects Nocturnes and Marriages, and even with her textural, experimental releases as a solo artists. But her new solo album, Some Heavy Ocean, is something else entirely.

In a sea of dark-folk contenders, “Shadows Of My Name” overflows.
