“scrappy and buzzy guitar rock, bolstered by Kempner’s dexterous riffs … also offers some darker, nuanced shades that evoke the album’s themes.” NPR
“A Dazed-Sounding Tribute To The Magic Of Queer Love” The Fader
“Kempner hums [these] private pleasures over a gently looping acoustic guitar line that sounds like something from one of Broken Social Scene’s whispered love songs, luxuriating in her present bliss and overcoming past anxieties.” Pitchfork
“guitar licks that build a permanent home in your head.”New York Magazine’s “The Cut”
“Her songs tend to pack the punch of dark personal experience and observations while still sounding bubbly; they often go down like jello shots.” New York Magazine’s “Vulture”
Boston’s Palehound has released the critically acclaimed sophomore album, A Place I’ll Always Go, on Polyvinyl Record Co. today. Lead by fierce vocalist and prolific creative force Ellen Kempner, A Place I’ll Always Go was recently included in Stereogum’s 50 Best Albums of 2017 So Far and had in-depth features with DigBoston, Bandcamp, Stereogum, OUT and Vanyaland with additional accolades from Rookie, Vulture, ELLE, NY Mag’s The Cut, FADER, NPR First Listen, early support from KCRW, KEXP & WXRT, and much more rolling in.
A Place I’ll Always Go is a frank look at love and loss, cushioned by indelible hooks and gently propulsive, fuzzed-out rock. The album channels feelings of anxiety — heart-racing moments both exhilarating and crushing — into songs that feel well-worn and comforting. Recorded at Brooklyn’s Thump Studios (with the assistance of Gabe Wax), A Place I’ll Always Go builds on the promise of Palehound’s critically acclaimed 2015 album Dry Food, showcasing songs that breathe Kempner’s evolved maturity. Palehound will celebrate the record’s release in Boston tonight at Sonia’s and, following a handful of headlining dates, will kick off a national tour with Waxahatchee in August.
