---- Gratiot Lake Road -----------------------------------------
“Goddamn Alone” is the first studio-recorded album by Tidewater Virginia duo Gratiot Lake Road (GRASH-it). A documentation of existential anxiety and depression tangled in family relationships, the album is a pre-medication meditation residing in the moment between realization and resolution. A search to understand the past and for hope in the future, the songs delve into those 3am thoughts that wake you with a start, the things said that can’t be taken back. The album features a mix of raw and effected acoustic guitar, banjo, and bass-crushing foot stomping recorded in a live style that draws heavily from the decade they lived in Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula. Recorded with Jim Roll (Frontier Ruckus, Breathe Owl Breathe, Chris Bathgate) at Willis Sound in Willis, MI. The album is available now for pre-order now on Bandcamp (gratiotlakeroad.bandcamp.com).

---- Lowland Hum ---------------------------------------------
Glyphonic is Lowland Hum’s fourth full-length of original material, following 2017's Thin. The band spent the last two years on the road in both the US and Europe with the likes of Josh Ritter, Penny and Sparrow, and The Oh Hellos. Over an expansive career, they've earned critical praise from NPR, Huffington Post, American Songwriter, The Washington Post and more. In 2019, Lowland Hum will embark upon a headlining US tour in support of the new album.

Glyphonic features the Goanses’ finest songwriting, with images specific enough to ground the listener in their worlds, yet strange enough to stir. The songs move fluidly from exterior observations to interior examinations, brought to life by a consistent run of the duo’s best vocal performances (and, in Lauren’s case, most prevalent; she takes the lead on six of these eleven songs).
