Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman has remade what The Weather Station sounds like once again. She has used the occasion of a new record to create a new sonic landscape, tailor-made to express an emotional idea. Ignorance is sensuous, ravishing, breaking into pure pop at moments, at others a dense wilderness of notes.
Ignorance began when Lindeman became obsessed with rhythm; specifically straight rhythm, dance rhythm, those achingly simple beats that had never showed up on a Weather Station album before. The album marks Lindeman’s first experience writing on keyboard, not guitar, and her first time building out arrangements before bringing them to a band. Montreal producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire) co-produced, with Lindeman, and also mixed the record. The lyrics across Ignorance roil with conflict. The narrator confronts characters who turn away from love.
Ignorance follows The Weather Station’s self-titled LP in 2017, and her 2015 breakthrough album Loyalty. Those albums saw Tamara develop an international fanbase, touring the world as both a headliner and support for artists such as The War on Drugs, The Mountain Goats, and Bahamas.

“No one else is writing true-life songs with such a command of nuance and ellipsis, with such generosity of unguarded emotion and careful economy of means.” - Richard Williams, Uncut Magazine
“Timeless... Measured, perceptive storytelling. A singer with an unmistakable & communicative voice, able to convey hope & hurt with equal clarity.” – Pitchfork
