Watch The Weather Station's "Kept It All to Myself" Video via SPIN.

Watch The Weather Station’s “Kept It All to Myself” Video via SPIN.

Watch the beautiful new video from The Weather Station, which SPIN calls “an inspired continuation of a rich tradition of intensely-disciplined, self-interrogative pop songwriting. The taut arrangements on The Weather Station, adorned here with aerial surges of strings, create The Weather Station’s own specific music universe, at turns claustrophobic or extending all the way towards a distant horizon.”

Gun Outfit Goes Out of Range.

Gun Outfit Goes Out of Range.

Like a stone eroded by years in the arroyo, Gun Outfit’s enveloping “Western expanse” aesthetic of guitar levitations and honky-tonk hexes has become gradually smoother over time. Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Preorder Out of Range, and hear “Strange Insistence” via NPR Music, who call it “a song about giving into pleasure, and discovering the joys and pains of consequence, centered around an irregular groove that squiggles like heat waves off baked asphalt.” Pitchfork compared it to Merle Haggard and Terry Allen! Also: in memoriam John Ashbery and Orpheus.

Pitchfork had some nice thoughts about “Thirty”, the lead single from The Weather Station’s upcoming self-titled album: “Few songwriters capture these subtle, shared moments with such fluidity.” The Guardian Observer New Review wonders, “Is Tamara Lindeman Americana’s best-kept secret?” And The New Yorker’s Amanda Petrusich opines that it’s “a song that could take a punch to the face,” on “the new record I’m most excited about right now.”

The Weather Station: The Weather Station (PoB-035)

On her fourth (and tellingly self-titled) album as The Weather Station, Tamara Lindeman reinvents, and more deeply roots, her extraordinary, acclaimed songcraft, framing her precisely detailed, exquisitely wrought prose-poem narratives in bolder and more cinematic musical settings. The result is her most sonically direct and emotionally candid statement to date, a work of profound urgency and artistic generosity.
