The Lonely Forest – “Live There” (Stereogum Premiere)

jessica | August 5, 2010 - 11:53 am

Washington State foursome the Lonely Forest caught the eye/ear of Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla, who not only signed them to his new label, Trans, but also produced, engineered, and mixed their debut EP and upcoming LP, Arrows. This first taste is an ode to the Pacific Northwest (and, in a way, a diss to Los Angeles and Nashville) that might remind you of another product of the Pacific Northwest, Band Of Horses.

The Lonely Forest – “Live There”

The Lonely Forest EP is out 9/14 via Trans. Here’s the track list:

01 “Turn Off This And Go Outside”
02 “Ramshackle House”
03 “Live There”
04 “Let It Go”
05 “Turn Off This Song And Go Outside (Acoustic)”

They’ve also got a bunch of upcoming tour dates with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and Margo and the Nuclear So and So’s.
