Hope is the second album by North Shields, England-based Brave Timbers, originally the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Sarah Kemp. It follows the 2010 debut of the project, For Every Day You Lost (which sold out of it's limited pressing), and contributions to Second Language's Minute Papillon (2011) and Music and Migration (2010) compilations (alongside artists including Peter Broderick, Vashti Bunyan, Hauschka, and Dustin O'Halloran). Joined by Andrew Scrogham, Kemp recorded Hope in a Victorian concert hall in Salford, England. It is a reflective, pastoral album of carefully built ambient landscapes. These 11 instrumental compositions demonstrate the minimal clarity of Brave Timbers, with the piano and violin circling one another and creating a sense of space and terrain. There's also dreamy timelessness within the music's flow and weave, from the gauzy atmospheres of Swimming in the Isar to the brittle warmth of The Well Worn Path. Hope has a purity and a simplicity that Brave Timbers bathe in a golden, spectral light.
