Noah Gundersen Record Release In-Store!
Friday 8/23 - 7 PM - Free Show + All-Ages!
Noah Gundersen is set to release his fourth full-length solo album, Lover, on August 23rd. Recorded over two years at Seattle’s The Crumb studio with longtime collaborator, producer/engineer Andy D. Park (Death Cab For Cutie, K. Flay, Pedro The Lion), Lover sees Gundersen continuing to veer towards an increasingly intimate and intense creative approach, wedding intricate beats and warm natural instrumentation to a series of stark, almost dreamlike, new songs. Rich with patience and grace, songs like “Older” and “Out of Time” reveal a remarkably gifted songwriter-artist in the midst of confrontation with life’s toughest truths, somehow emerging with even greater self-awareness and understanding.
