Louise Lemón - A Broken Heart is an Open Heart (CD in Digisleeve)

Regular price €15,00
Following on from her critically praised debut album ‘Purge’, Louise Lemón returns with her highly anticipated new album A Broken Heart Is An Open Heart. Experimenting with instrumentation and production since her last full-length, Lemón is a rejuvenated presence on her new album, taking cues from the 60s and 70s psych-rock and soul era to influence her songwriting, channelling the sultry vibes of the early Fleetwood Mac-era.

Produced and mixed alongside regular collaborator Randall Dunn (Sunn O))) / Myrkur / Chelsea Wolfe) in Copenhagen and New York, the record was exclusively recorded using vintage microphones and amplifiers to create the most organic sound, with each track recorded live in the studio.

Speaking about the new album, Louise added, “I wanted to make it this album both darker and brighter. We've used far cleaner sounds than ever before, concentrating on creating darkness in new ways. The songwriting has been very focused. I’ve evolved as a woman and with my writing I’ve explored new feelings, going further and deeper in to the ways I’ve felt and the situations life's brought me to. It was such a blessing to be able to work with my band so closely, they are very much a part of the soundscape and we couldn’t be happier to have had Randall Dunn produce it.”

Louise has showcased some of this new material live with her long European tour with Sólstafir this winter, followed by her performance at Eurosonic, and her touring in 2019 looks very promising (starting with her ‘Road to Roadburn tour’ in March and playing the Roadburn Festival in April)
