A Gift For Saint Cecilia

"A Gift For Saint Cecilia" is the 2009 studio release by ilyAIMY. Recorded by Matthew Polonchak of the band Transcendent Third at the studios at the University of Maryland, Baltimore Campus in Catonsville, MD - it captures some of ilyAIMY's finest songs, spanning the whole i love you And I Miss You gamut from Love to hate and everything in between. There is country and metal and traditional folk and a little taste of bluegrass - all the flavours that still swirl into ilyAIMY's post-folk sound. Matt was chosen by the band to record the album because of his exquisite ear, and because he's been a fan of the band for years and therefore is uniquely qualified to capture the band's sound.

"A Gift For Saint Cecilia" brings a couple of new colours to the band's acoustic palette - Kristen Jones (Pan Masters, 50 Man Machine) guests on cello for two tracks and percussionist Rowan Corbett (ilyAIMY, Tinsmith, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens) branches out from Irish bones and African djembe to add a bodhran track to "Protest Song"

As always, ilyAIMY's vocalist and guitarist rob Hinkal created the cover art for the CDs jacket, completing the mood of the piece as a whole, depicting Saint Cecilia perpetrating grand schemes with ilyAIMY's rabbit army, in preparation for what will no doubt be a world-shaking revolution.
