Lean Year (Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson) is based in Richmond, Virginia.
Erik Hall lives in rural Michigan, where he records and co-produces the band’s records with Alverson.
A quietly devastating record.
...an impressive debut.
Stunning… such beautiful atmosphere.
…gorgeously minimal slice of modern-folk.
Every note seems to have been dropped perfectly in place...
...stunning...a tender landscape of captivating intrigue...
…a gorgeous piece of ghostly folk-rock, like a flickering transmission coming through an old radio from a lost place and time.
