Release Date: 6th October 2017
The Toronto singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman aka The Weather Station returns with her 4th LP and follow-up to 2015's majestic Loyalty which was our favourite folk record of the year. On the tellingly self-titled The Weather Station Lindeman reinvents and more deeply roots her extraordinary acclaimed song-craft 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. Self-titled and self-produced the album unearths a vital new energy and includes a lot more alt-country and full-band folk-rock than used by her on previous records. If you are a fan of the likes of Angel Olsen Sharon Van Etten Nadia Reid and Hiss Golden Messenger then stop what you're doing and put this on pronto!
