In March 2020, Pokey LaFarge packed up and left his Los Angeles abode behind, putting his belongings in storage in anticipation of spending extensive time on the road in support of his then-forthcoming album, Rock Bottom Rhapsody. He couldn’t wait to head down to Austin a few weeks later to showcase those songs and launch the album with his band at SXSW. Then the pandemic hit and all of LaFarge’s well-laid plans went into thin air. Stuck in East Austin with nowhere to go, LaFarge did what he does best: he got to work. He used the sudden change in plans to his advantage, having perhaps his greatest period of personal growth in the midst of the crippling pandemic.
His new album, In the Blossom of Their Shade, showcases the positivity of coming out of the darkness and into the light and is one of his strongest and most mature lyrical efforts to date. Inspired by the deep soul not just from these shores, but from distant geographical places like Africa or South America, LaFarge has created a body of work that paired emotional lyrics with a killer groove and grabby melodies.
Louisa Stancioff has emerged as a gifted writer with a cinematic eye for richly detailed, emotionally-charged character studies that grapple with the complexities of loneliness and desire, freedom and regret, guilt and forgiveness. A nomadic soul who spent stints living in Alaska, California, New York, and North Carolina before returning home to Maine, she grew up learning traditional Bulgarian music from her paternal grandfather’s side of the family and reveled in singing American folk and roots tunes with her friends. Recorded with producer Benny Yurco in Burlington, VT, and following her debut single "Red Neck Yaught Club", “Cass’s Song” marks Stancioff’s second release under her own name, as well as her second single with Yep Roc Records, which will release her full-length debut album in 2024.
