We are happy to announce that Adrianne Lenker's prior work will be widely available for the first time on November 16th. Before she became the beloved frontperson for Big Thief, she'd been quietly writing songs for years, both on her own and with Buck Meek.
Hours Were the Birds, Adrianne Lenker's first solo album, will be available on CD + LP. Also, Adrianne Lenker & Buck Meek's two releases will be available together as a double CD or single LP, simply entitled a-sides and b-sides. This marks the first time that any of these songs will find their way onto vinyl and onto the record store shelf. Order both albums here.
Tomberlin, the Los Angeles via Lousiville, KY artist, has announced a new EP titled Projections with a Busy Philipps-directed video for its lead single "Wasted." The EP, which was produced by Alex G (Alex Giannascoli) and his bandmate Sam Acchione, continues the arc of her critically acclaimed 2018 debut, At Weddings. The rich vocal harmonies and guitar lines that made At Weddings so riveting still provide the EP's foundation, but new percussive backing and instrumental flourishes open the path forward for Tomberlin.
