A Weather

ARTIST / BAND: A Weather
MP3: Giant Stairs
ALBUM: Everyday Baloons
FILE UNDER: indie-folk
LABEL: Bad Panda Records
From Portland, Oregon A Weather are here for your listening pleasure. The indie-folk unit will release tomorrow, March 2, their forthcoming sophomore album Everyday Balloons,on Team Love Records (the label founded by Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes).
heir new album was once again recorded by engineer Adam Selzer (M. Ward, The Decemberists, Norfolk & Western) at Portland’s Type Foundry Studios, Everyday Balloons is propelled by the restrained yet unmistakable power of A Weather’s songs.  This singular quality recalls critical recognition of Cove, of which NPR’s ‘Song of the Day’ observed, “In the band’s hands, a sigh is far more compelling than a scream”, while the album also garnered high praise from Pitchfork (“…A Weather are, quite literally, a quiet storm”) as well as Nylon,, Popmatters, and The New York Daily News, among others.
