Slaughter Beach, Dog – “Strange Weather”

Slaughter Beach, Dog – “Strange Weather”

It’s been a few years since the last Slaughter Beach, Dog album — that would be At The Moonbase, which Jake Ewald surprise-released at the end of 2020. But he’s kept the project rolling along, hitting the road consistently and dropping covers and one-offs with some regularity.

Today, Slaughter Beach, Dog is back with a new single, “Strange Weather,” to coincide with the announcement of some fall US tour dates. It’s about “doing your very best to disappear from yourself,” Ewald said in a press release. “Hiromi Kawakami and Jason Molina live in here. I think Jia Tolentino, too,” he continued. “Trying to hold light in your hand. Certainly as a bad prank that unfolds across decades. Sometimes all I get is sha-la-la.”

Ewald duets on the track with Erin Rae, the Nashville musician whose most recent album Lighten Up, came out last year. Listen to “Strange Weather” below.
