A Legacy of Rentals: Vinyl LP
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Positive Jams
Release Date: 12th August
Tales of small-town America, of people on the fringe, of regular folk who want a bit more, of everyday struggles and the feeling you're always punching up but only connecting with air. We love Craig Finn.
For those who dig: Paul Westerberg, Cassandra Jenkins and the great American storytellers like Jack Kerouac, Bukowski and Cormac McCarthy...
"A Legacy of Rentals was largely written during 2020, in the shadow of the pandemic and the George Floyd murder that occurred in my hometown of Minneapolis. It was recorded in 2021 with producer Josh Kaufman, engineer D. James Goodwin, and a number of other friends and collaborators."
"These songs deal a lot with memory: how we remember people that are gone, places that have changed, major events that are part of our past. It's about how memories become the stories that we tell others and ourselves. It’s about the distortion that happens to our own histories when stretched by time and distance. It’s about finding joy in the mundane and engaging in hope in our everyday." Craig Finn
