Meg Duffy grew up in a small town in Upstate New York and they cut their teeth as a session guitarist and touring member of Kevin Morby’s band. The Hand Habits project emerged after Meg moved to Los Angeles; it started as a private songwriting outlet but soon evolved into a fully-fledged band with Meg at the helm. Hand Habits’ debut album, Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void), was released by Woodsist Records in 2017. The LP was entirely self-produced and recorded in Meg’s home during spare moments when they weren’t touring. Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void) is a lush, homespun collection of folk songs that found Meg in an exploratory state as an artist moving out on their own for the first time.

Two years later, Hand Habits has returned with their sophomore album, placeholder. To make this album, Meg chose to work in a studio and bring in collaborators, entrusting them with what had previously been a very personal creative process. Over the course of 12 tracks, Meg emerges with new confidence as both a bandleader and singer. This album is as tender and immediate as anything Meg’s ever written, but it’s also intensely focused and refined, the work of a meticulous musician ready to share their singular vision with the world.

The name placeholder stems from Meg’s fascination with the undefinable. Their songs serve as openings -- carved-out spaces waiting to be endowed with meaning. As a lyricist, Meg is drawn to the in-between, and the songs on this new album primarily confront the ways in which certain experiences can serve as a stepping stone on the road to self-discovery. “A big aspect of my songwriting and the way I move through the world depends on my relationships with people. The songs on placeholder are about accountability and forgiveness,” Meg says. “These are all real stories. I don’t fictionalize much.”

Meg describes these songs as their most direct to date, crafted with clear intention, and unlike Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void), placeholder doesn’t meander. “It’s less of a submerged landscape and more a concise series of thoughts,” Meg explains. Instrumentally, placeholder can be situated alongside some of Meg’s folk-adjacent contemporaries like Angel Olsen or Big Thief, and the guitar work on this album proves that Meg continues to be one of the finest young musicians working today. placeholder is another entry in the Hand Habits songbook, but it’s also a valuable testament of our time. While placeholder inspires a sense of ease, simple questions rarely beget easy answers and Meg honors the indescribable joy and profound sorrow that comes with figuring things out, one step at a time.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
In the 1980 documentary "Philip Guston: A Life Lived," the famed neo-expressionist
talks about a painting he keeps starting over. "It looked alright_but it felt to me as if
it were additions_this and that and that," he says. "What I'm always seeking is some
great simplicity where the whole thing is just there." "That, to me, is the ideal feeling
of existing," says John Rossiter, singer and guitarist of the LA-based art rock quartet
Young Jesus. "That feeling you pursue when you're creating, when the world is
opening up and things are on the cusp of beauty and revelation, but it's just out of
reach. To maintain that in the face of depressing or dicult stu is what I'd like to be
able to do." This pursuit is what drives Young Jesus, and it's documented on their
upcoming record The Whole Thing Is Just There. On The Whole Thing, which takes
its name from the late painter's words, Young Jesus combines a palette of indie rock
instrumentation with a spirit of unhindered spontaneity to construct_and
deconstruct_emo-tionally potent and inventive sonic landscapes. Imbued with a
sense of both desperation and discovery, each track unfolds like a deep sea voyage:
beginning on the familiar ground of a conventional song structure before setting sail
for the open waters of instrumental experimentation and plumbing the depths of the
unknown in search of some conceptual treasure before heading back to port.

Be Here Now
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Saddle Creek)
24,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The Mynabirds' new album, Be Here Now, is a collection of 9 songs written and
recorded in just 2 weeks in January 2017 following the Inauguration and the Women's
March. Singer Laura Burhenn worked with producer Patrick Damphier in his Nashville
studio (which he was being evicted as the neighborhood began to gentrify, old
warehouses turning to tech offices and luxury condos) to document the news and
peoples' intense emotional responses to it all in real time. No stranger to politics in her
songwriting, Laura aimed to speak from the voice of the collective consciousness in a
work of "Emotional Journalism," singing the heartbreak, anger, exhaustion and resolute
hope she witnessed during the Muslim travel ban, the +nal stand at Standing Rock, and
every other news story that rattled America in that period. The album vacillates in style
and feel to reflect a frayed nation, featuring a Burundian refugee choir on one song, and
a cacophony of dissonant saxophones in a new national anthem on another. It is the last
recording made in that space.
