“Andy Shauf is a singer-songwriter with an ear for the sort of tender, melancholy songs that Harry Nilsson produced a world away in Los Angeles,” writes The AV Club. Today you can hear those songs care of NPR’s First Listen as they premiere Shauf’s brand new album The Party in full.

At The Party, the acclaimed young artist uses ornate arrangements of fuzzed-out guitars, string sections, clarinets and dreamy synths, all draped over delicate piano, acoustic guitars and rainy-day drums to masterfully create a cast of memorable and unique characters.

The Saskatchewan-based Shauf recorded his first album at home and toured Western Canada playing DIY punk venues with an acoustic guitar. In 2015 he gained attention with an album called The Bearer of Bad News that NPR called one of “2015’s most breathtaking albums.”


Andy Shauf is currently on tour in Europe and set to open for case/lang/veirs on their anticipated tour this June.
