S, the long-time project of Jenn Ghetto (formerly of Carissa’s Wierd), has recently signed to Hardly Art, who will release her new album Cool Choices on September 23. The album was produced by Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla at his Hall of Justice studios in Seattle, and features a live band for the first time on one of her albums.
Here’s what Ghetto had to say about the album in a press release that she herself penned:
At the start of 2012, in the middle of a break-up, I started writing this record. As with the others, the songs all started in my bedroom, but I convinced my metal drummer friend Zach McNulty to help me flesh them out (you guys, he uses a lot of restraint), along with my longtime friends Betsy Olson (bass) and Carrie Murphy (guitar) because I knew they were talented, I liked being around them, and they both had cars
Below, you can grab a free download of the album’s first single “Vampires.” It’s a light and airy track full of guitars that sound like they could have came off those early Barsuk released Death Cab for Cutie records.
