Remote Control - MILK070LP
I Am The River, The River Is Me, Cloher's fifth album, is verdant and rich; it luxuriates in stillness, and carries itself with cool, unfussy confidence. It suggests that home is not found in a place or a politic, but in the community you keep: Inspired by Cloher's powerful matrilineal line of wÄhine MÄori, I Am The River, The River Is Me is not urgent, or hurried, but it is vital, made with the care and ease of someone who knows that their past began before birth, and will continue long after they're gone.
Recorded between Aotearoa (NZ) and Naarm (Melbourne) with producers Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Marlon Williams), Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Cloher's longtime drummer Jen Sholakis; the album brings in trailblazing artists including Emma Donovan (Gumbaynggirr, Yamatji), Kylie Auldist, Liz Stringer, Te Kaahu (Waikato-Tainui, NgÄti TÄ«pÄ), Ruby Solly (Kai Tahu, Waitaha, KÄti MÄmoe) and members of the Naarm-based Kapa Haka, Te Hononga o ngÄ Iwi. The entire record feels communal - a celebration not just of Cloher, but of the rich, life-filled communities that surround them.
