The Weather Station is the fourth and most forthright album by The Weather Station, the project of Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman. Lindeman wanted to make a rock and roll record, but have it sound how she wants it to sound. The result is a spirited, frequently topical tour de force that declares its understated feminist politics, and its ambitious new sonic directions, from its first moments.
Self-titled and self-produced, her new album unearths a vital new energy from Lindeman’s acclaimed songwriting practice, marrying it to a bold new sense of confidence. Her previous album, Loyalty, earned praise from The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR Music, Uncut, and MOJO, among many others.
Lindeman and her band have toured extensively in North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan, both as a headliner and as support for artists such as The War on Drugs, The Mountain Goats, Damien Jurado, Bahamas, and Basia Bulat.
Sam Moss is a finger style guitarist, turned singer songwriter based out of Boston. His early music includes recordings of instrumental folk guitar, but his sound has gradually evolved to be more lyrically centric. His acclaimed 2016 release, Fable gained attention from WXPN, calling it “an easy-flowing, so-wonderful-to-listen-to collection of un-weighted folk-rock. This is the kind of well-crafted music that looks simple to make, but requires a certain level of skill, focus, and imagination to put together.”
