“All of us here at the Light In The Attic clubhouse are excited to be distributing the latest album from Boston’s Saul Conrad. A Tyrant And Lamb, out now on Cavity Search Records, is his third studio album and is on heavy rotation here in the office. We recently caught up with Saul for a short Q&A. You can read our interview with him” here!
also, there are some killer videos embedded throughout…and the last one is the new video for the lead track off a tyrant and lamb: Carousel
Download “Where You Been” and the rest of Utne’s May sampler
“a tyrant and lamb, more-or-less, stays within the tried-and-true parameters of country/folk songwriting without sacrificing the unique voice and melodies that comprise Conrad’s signature sound. Revealing shades of Elliott Smith, Harry Nilsson, and Stephen Malkmus, it’s an enjoyable journey through the fascinating mind of an artist who’s simply not interested in making cookie-cutter music.” — Christian Williams, Utne Reader
Found in the middle of the record, and aesthetically at its core, “Where You Been” has the structure of a traditional, classic American love song, radiating out through the landscape of a tyrant and lamb.
a tyrant and lamb will be out –on vinyl and for digital download– on May 20th.
