Boat Songs: Vinyl LPLPDLR031
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Dear Life Records
Release Date: 2nd September
This record is about living well on your own terms maybe it's buying a boat or watching the wheels of life turn, it's about the good vibrations from the earth. It's a tangy alt-country, folk shack, slightly rural scuzzy fuzzy record this one and I just simply can't stop listening to it.
For those who dig: Whiskeytown, the last Big Thief record, Good Looks, Wednesday (MJ Lederman's other band), Trace Mountains, Whitney, Another Michael, Wild Pink...
Jake Lenderman lives in Asheville, North Carolina - He plays guitar in the indie band Wednesday and creates his own music as MJ Lenderman
His latest solo release with Dear Life Records is titled Boat Songs. Lenderman describes the album as his most 'polished' sound to date, built around songs that 'chase fulfillment and happiness' whether that means buying a boat, drinking too much, or watching seeds fall from the bird feeder. Boat Songs is the followup to Lenderman's 2020 label debut, Ghost of Your Guitar Solo, and subsequent release, Knockin', with Dear Life Records, both of which were critically acclaimed for their off- the- cuff alternative country sound. But with Boat Songs, Lenderman emerges confident as ever, an innovative voice impossible to ignore.
