Landlady To Release
The World Is A Loud Place On January 20
First Album In Bandcamp History With Animated-Gif Cover Art
February National Headlining Tour
“[Landlady] joins a lineage of New York City art-rock bands that transmute existential questions and primal fears into exultant songs, bands like Talking Heads, TV on the Radio and Dirty Projectors.” – Jon Pareles, New York Times
Landlady, the Brooklyn five-piece led by Adam Schatz will release their new album The World Is A Loud Place on January 20th on Hometapes + Landladyland.
Featuring art and animations by comic artist Jesse Jacobs, for the album and each song, The World Is a Loud Place is the first in Bandcamp history with animated-gif cover art.
Releasing tracks in pairs, the band released “Electric Abdomen” & “Driving in California” which Stereogum called “grand, sweeping, idiosyncratic, impressively arranged pieces of work.” Also released were the songs “Nina & Solid Brass”. See the animated gif cover art, stream the singles, and pre-order HERE.
Led by Adam Schatz who co-produces the NYC Winter Jazzfest, the band consists of core members Ian Chang, Ian McLellan Davis, Booker Stardrum and Will Graefe. Since their well received 2014 album, Upright Behavior, the band has worked with the likes of Sylvan Esso, Rubblebucket, Nels Cline and more.
Kicking things off with an album release party at House of Yes in Brooklyn on January 25th, the band will be heading out on a national headlining tour in February. Tour dates below.
