Order a tyrant and lamb LP here!
a tyrant and lamb, Saul Conrad’s third studio album, draws ten crystalline songs into a tight orbit around a haunted country sun. Gently interrogating the lifelong echoes of cruel words, unpredictable outbursts and deep-set affection–if you love someone, kill their family in their mind, and set them free– a tyrant and lamb, constructs, from the ligaments of childhood wonder and searing disappointment, a mature musculature into which each listener must step and learn anew how it feels to walk.
Saul Conrad’s songwriting may not strive to erase discord or pain, but perhaps gives us a new means of interpreting the mechanism of our troubled minds.
a tyrant and lamb attempts something that few seem willing to try in this time, a time that makes it a challenge to devote oneself to the necessary extent, “to become a spy” for an ideal beyond what society necessarily prizes most highly.
