The Weather Station shares “Tapes” tour dates

The Weather Station shares "Tapes," from the 'Loyalty' LP, out 5/12 on Paradise Of Bachelors.
The Weather Station, the musical project of Toronto artist Tamara Lindeman, has announced a full North American tour in support of her upcoming album, Loyalty. The album was recorded in close collaboration with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist). The tour crosses Canada, the south and both coasts with Great Lake Swimmers, including a performance at this year’s Pickathon Fest.  Today, The Weather Station shares the single “Tapes” which you can listen to below.

Outside her musical practice, Lindeman also happens to be an accomplished film and television actor, and it’s her directorial eye for quietly compelling characters and the rich details of the everyday, Bressonian in its specificity and scope, that drives the limpid singularity of The Weather Station’s songs. As in Bresson’s films, there is no trace of theater here, no brittle singer-songwriter histrionics, but rather a powerful performative focus and narrative restraint. Despite the descriptive delicacy, the album never lapses into preciousness or sentimentality, instead retaining its barbs and bristles and remaining resolutely clear-eyed and thick-skinned.
