Artist: The Weather Station

Songs: Like Sisters + Nobody

Recorded at Artscape Gibraltar Point (Wavelength 678: Camp Wavelength – Day 3), August 30, 2015.

The Weather Station - Like Sisters

The Weather Station - Nobody

You can read my general notes on Camp Wavelength here. How lovely to experience something like this on the island! Presenting the songs from her excellent Loyalty album, Tamara Lindeman and her band (including Adrian Cook's pedal steel, Ben Whiteley's bass, and Afie Jurvanen's drums alongside backing vocalists Ivy Mairi and Felicity Williams) evoked a quiet storm, subtly forceful but never in-your-face. Besides the material from the new album, Lindeman also played a couple songs that had been written at Artscape Gibraltar Point, so it seems befitting to include "Nobody" here — "you could find yourself down by a lake / about as wide and still as you can take".
