Watch: Lionlimb “Clover” Video

Feb 01, 2018

Lionlimb is comprised of founding members Stewart Bronaugh (formerly of Angel Olsen's band) and Joshua Jaeger (currently of Angel Olsen's band.) Their new album, Tape Recorder, coming out February 23rd on Bayonet follows 2016’s Shoo. Lionlimb have unveiled the video for the second single, “Clover"

.

From the press release: On “Clover,” Lionlimb’s Stewart Bronaugh remarks, “The song is sort of about things having two sides. When something can bring you so much joy one minute and chaos the next.” He continues, “This video started to make sense of itself as we were shooting. I had just bought a 16mm camera and Joey [Bell] and I were playing around with it. Learning how to work it and coming up with ideas at the same time.”

Tape Recorder is a collection of six tracks written by Bronaugh after Lionlimb’s second European tour in Fall 2016, primarily on piano in Columbia University practice rooms. After having collaborated with a friend who plays cello, Bronaugh began expanding the songs to include violin, cello and bass clarinet. Having been the first time he scored music by hand, Bronaugh looked to ‘70s minimalist composers for research. After recording the entire album live, the resulting six tracks on Tape Recorder are reflective, soulful, and based around loose themes of family and memory. The minimal, bare-bones live recording of the album and collaborative orchestration of the music give Tape Recorder a deeply human and tangible beauty.

 

Lionlimb will soon bring the songs of Tape Recorder to life with performances at the Park Church Co-op in Brooklyn on February 23rd, Peanut Gallery in Chicago on March 9th and Soft Junk in Nashville on March 10th.
