The new “Album of the Week” spotlight shines down on, Sucker’s Lunch, from Oakland musician Madeline Kenney, released July 31sh via Carpark Records. This stunner of record is her third and was co-produced by Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of the band Wye Oak. Together the three have created a collection of songs that perfectly captures Kenney’s incredible vocals and outstanding guitar playing.
Of the album, Kenney shares, “I’m not interested in something easy or immediately apparent. My experience writing these songs wasn’t easy, it was painful and difficult. I was terrified of falling in love, and as much as I’d like to write a sticky sweet song for someone, it doesn’t come naturally to me. Instead I wanted to explore the tiny moments; sitting alone in my room guessing what the other person was thinking, spiraling into a maze of logical reasons to bail and finding my way out again. When I spoke with friends about the theme of the ‘idiot’, it became apparent that everyone understood that feeling and was relieved to hear it echoed in someone else.”
You should really add this one to your collection friends! Why don’t you take a listen to the wonderful new single, “White Window Light,” up above and then journey on over to her official store to download Sucker’s Lunch or grab yourself a physical copy!
