Caroline Rose - LONER [Vinyl]
- 150g opaque red vinyl
- 12", 1-LP
"The songs and narratives on LONER reflect my life over the last couple years - I joined Tinder, I got my first apartments and painted it teal, I went to parties, I discussed politics, I had a girlfriend, we traveled the country, we broke up. I learned, for better or worse, how to be a member of the modern world. Turns out the modern world is terrifying.
Tired of the bottomless pit of sad songs, I decided to put a spin on my greatest songwriting inspirations - misogyny, unplanned pregnancy, Capitalism, anxiety, loneliness, and death - and wrap such depressing subject matter in a sprightly, angsty pop burrito...because it's hard being serious all the time and sometimes sad songs just need a cocktail.
LONER reflects the styles of music I love - pop, folk, punk, electronic, and surf music - all thrown into a blender with a ladle full of cheeky satire. I call it Schizodrift. It sounds like Blondie drunk on mai tais.
LONER was co-produced by myself and the wonderful Paul Butler (Devendra Banhart, Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul & The Broken Bones) and recorded in freezing Northern California, in addition to my parent's attic and my last apartment. It was mixed by sound guru Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Nick Hakim, Show Me The Body) in Brooklyn, NY."
