Chelsea Wolfe - Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs (2012)

This is the second album from Chelsea Wolfe, and its a chilling album made with simple americana folk traditions, and often two chord arrangements. Its a different direction since her last album Ἀποκάλυψις where now we find her leaning more towards early PJ Harvey or Nina Nastasia. Unknown rooms is a little on the short side but i feel this brings it to a more close and personal conclusion. Its a bitter sweet story she tells with complete honesty. A beautiful album.
