Weather Station - How Is It That I Should I Look At The Stars (Haze Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
The Weather Station returns with How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, an introspective record of songs which were written alongside the ones that appeared on her 2021 smash record, Ignorance. This new album is not intended to be a follow up, but rather a companion piece, a piece of reflection and quiet, meant to hold stillness in the aftermath.
It was recorded live, as a performance; an improvisation, with a beautiful band of musicians drawn from the Toronto jazz scene. "When I wrote Ignorance, it was a time of intense creativity, and I wrote more songs than I ever had in my life. The songs destined to be on the album were clear from the beginning, but as I continued down my writing path, songs kept appearing that had no place on the album I envisioned."
She continues, "I imagined it as a record of ballads; simple, pure, almost naive, but speaking to many of the same realities as Ignorance does. I see the two albums as two halves of the same coin; the moon and sun, a photograph and a photonegative."
