The Weather Station
today’s forecast : a warm stevie nicks front giving way to a strong weyes blood breeze from the west with a touch of talk talk drifting in from the south – perfect conditions for a ruddy great album.
‘ignorance’ is anything but unaware of its influences, yet despite the fact tamara lindeman doesn’t hide her love for the very 80’s interplay of drama and quiet & hushed moments, this still sounds astoundingly fresh, inventive and catchy. we were hooked after one listen, this is simply an exceptional record that we can’t stop spinning. “a well-crafted and heart-felt piece of work that dances seamlessly through the caverns of dark and light, a perfect offering to hold onto with hope.” 8/10 - clash "shades of talk talk and sensual world-era kate bush glimmer through tamara lindeman's comeback, which reinvents the canadian folk-rock outfit as art-pop aesthetes with a sharply surreal line in political commentary" - guardian. stereogum on “robber” - “look, even if you loved the recent weather station albums as much as we did, you are not prepared for “robber.” it marks a whole new sound for lindeman, one based in tension-building jazz rhythms and disembodied saxophones and slow-then-all-encompassing melodies; she’s abandoned any remaining vestiges of folk for an elusive strain of rock music here. “robber” blew me away the first time i heard it and it is, frankly, an incredible song.” the new york times on “robber” - “moving away from the joni mitchell-inspired folk of her previous albums, she embraces a sound more akin to the spacious and vaguely uneasy compositions of talk talk, allowing her music to more effectively take up big, billowing questions."
