After Dreamend released 2010’s So I Ate Myself, Bite By Bite, the singer-songwriter relocated, bringing his Chicago life with him to Savannah, Georgia. Unfortunately, a large portion of his massive instrument collection — a cello, a bell set, an organ, a banjo, and a microphone — was wrecked in the move. Determined, he set out to record his follow-up. New full-length And the Tears Washed Me, Wave After Cowardly Wave was recorded using those same instruments, in the state they were in following their trek in a moving truck. The result is a record that conveys brokenness and raw emotion.
Though its official release is a week away, you can hear And the Tears Washed Me, Wave After Cowardly Wave right now, exclusively on Rdio.
