New Orleans-based Lonesome Leash, the solo project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Walt McClements, is currently on tour in support of his brand new EP, “One Foot in Front of the Other.” The EP drops Tuesday, Sept. 10; McClements plays Apothecary on Saturday, Sept. 21.
About the new EP:
“Lonesome Leash’s new EP, One Foot in Front of the Other, to be released September 10, 2013 consists of five songs written over a 4 month stretch of tour from January to April, 2013. Recorded during a two-day pit-stop in Brooklyn to unload ideas, the EP pushes out, in all directions, the aesthetic boundaries set in place by the debut album, I am No Captain, released in January this year. McClements again worked with engineer and producer Don Godwin (Callers, REANIMATOR) to situate the songs among disparate but fluid sonic landscapes This finds the EP traveling a vast section of textural ground, where minimalist accordion instrumentals bleed into tense and unsettling lo-fi pop, jagged fanfares punctuate layers of distorted accordions, and driving electronic beats fade into pastoral soundscapes.”
