Listen to "Real Estate" by Lisa/Liza Posted 29 Oct 2018

This morning, Post-Trash premiered "Real Estate," the second single from Lisa/Liza's forthcoming album, Momentary Glance (out Nov 30). Post-Trash's Dan Goldin describes the song as follows:

Kept primarily to a hush, the bare-bones approach to the finger-picked melody and gently commanding vocals feels like a presence of another time, reflections of memories brought to life during the cold winter months. (Liza) Victoria’s poetic vocals recalling specific moments that feel abstract but reflective, an open-framework to a world both ruminative and transportive as she sings, “Watch the stars fall apart / Makes the road to no-place / Seem a lot less lost / And you seem a lot less lost.”

Goldin goes on to describe Momentary Glance as a whole as "about as beautiful as they come, each performance stretched out with dimly shimmering clarity and blissful patience." You can read the full article HERE.

You can pre-order Momentary Glance as a CD, LP, download, or a special edition colored vinyl + bonus cassette bundle HERE.

Listen to "Hi Beams" by Matt Bachmann (featuring Erin Birgy of Mega Bog) Posted 26 Oct 2018

This morning, Week in Pop premiered "Hi Beams,' the second single from Mega Bog bassist Matt Bachmann's latest solo tape, Unconditional Love (out 11/2 on Orindal). "Hi Beams" features guest vocals from Matt's Mega Bog bandmate Erin Birgy (pictured above with Matt). Week in Pop's Sjimon Gompers says:

"Hi Beams" serenely drives with a sentimental sincerity that coasts sweetly and deeply into the calm mysteries of night. The understated and intimate vocal trade-off between and Bachmann and Birgy creates the sensation of spending time on a late evening road trip with a loved one.

LISA/LIZA: "The Matador Pt 2" premiere & Momentary Glance pre-order Posted 16 Oct 2018

Momentary Glance, the second LP by Liza Victoria's psych folk recording project, Lisa/Liza, will be released by Orindal Records on November 30, 2018. Vinyl LPs, CDs, digital dowloads, & special colored vinyl bundles (featuring an exclusive vinyl color, poster & bonus tape) are now available for pre-order HERE.

Momentary Glance is Victoria's first album of electric guitar recordings, half of which feature the recording debut of her live band (comprised of fellow Mainers Jonathan Downs, Devin Ivy & Pete Swegart). Momentary Glance was recorded & mixed by Efrim Manuel Menuck (of Godspeed! You Black Emperor & Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra) at his hotel2tango studio in Montreal, with the exception of the song “Tea Kettle,” which was recorded & mixed by Colby Nathan at New Fruit Collective in Portland, Maine.

This morning, Stereogum premiered the epic first single, "The Matador Pt 2," calling it "a meditative eight minutes of downtuned strumming and world-weary searching that serves as a continuation of a theme she first explored on a song from 2014. “I turned around to see the stars/ It wasn’t where the answers are,” she sings, letting those hanging questions fill up the empty space around her. It’s patient and enveloping, and in comparison to the earlier version of this song, it allows even more room for quiet and shaky contemplation.

"Victoria has an uncanny knack for intense atmospherics — her debut album utilized only her voice and an acoustic guitar, and with her forthcoming sophomore album, Momentary Glance, she opens up her sound. It’s her first electric album, made with her new live band and recorded by Godspeed! You Black Emperor’s Efrim Manuel Menuck at his studio in Montreal. It’s a collection of gently unfurling tracks centered around Victoria’s placid voice and an intoxicating static buzz."
