i dont know who needs to hear this... by Tomberlin song img

Tomberlin is Sarah Beth Tomberlin, a pastors kid born in Florida, raised in rural Illinois. She wrote the majority of her debut, At Weddings (2018), while living at home. For a while after leaving home and church, she lived in Louisville, Kentucky. She worked a day job and kept writing songs. She posted some of these songs to Bandcamp, which led to her signing a record deal with Saddle Creek. It all happened fast: Less than a year after her first live show, she performed on Jimmy Kimmel and she ended up moving to L.A. which is where she wrote Projections (2020), her EP followup to At Weddings.

During the pandemic, Sarah Beth was all over the place, physically and mentally. Louisville. Los Angeles. Back home in Illinois for a bit. Brooklyn, where shes now settled, she says. Brooklyn is also where her new album i dont know who needs to hear this was recorded, at Figure 8 studios over the course of two weeks, with producer and engineer Phil Weinrobe (who played a variety of instruments on the collection), and later mastered by Josh Bonati, also in Brooklyn.

The theme of the record, she explains, is to examine, hold space, make an altar for the feelings. Hold space: Tomberlins songs do it literally, making it heard space. Her full-length debut, At... more

Backwoods of My Mind by Swarme of Beese


Backwoods of My Mind by Swarme of Beese song img

Swarme of Beese weave subtle layers of instrumental texture and hints of psychedelic folk into the minor keys and stripped-down underpinnings of the bands hillbilly noir aesthetic, creating a mutant folk sound with a strong American gothic undercurrent. A source close to the band has described it as hillbillies who got lost on their way to the moonshine still and stumbled upon some mushrooms.

The album's eight shadowy, unsettling tracks take the listener down haunted paths that meander off the main roads to the eerie places where boundaries between the real and the imaginal disappear. Songs of heartbreak and longing, lost innocence and betrayal, guilt and forgiveness are punctuated with atmospheric arrangements, soaring harmonies, and sweeping violin solos. The tracks flow like sequences from an apocalyptic fever dream; but when the fever breaks and the songs end, were left with a sense of hope and redemption.

Ben Schillaci said: 'I found this record at my local library while I lived in Burlington ON as a teenager. Only picked it up because of the beautiful cover art, I went in totally deaf. This record takes me back to long bike rides through the mansion lined neighbourhoods that swallowed my parents modest bungalow. Being isolated and alone and riding my bike into Bronte instead of being in class. Getting caught in June thunderstorms and hiding out under gazebos. It brings back a lonely time when I was hungry for inspiration. The simplicity of this music taught me a lot.'
