KILL ROCK STARS TO RELEASE THIRD JEFF HANSON LP “MADAM OWL” AUGUST 19TH
RECORD RELEASE PARTY TO BE HELD AT TRIPLE ROCK IN MINNEAPOLIS, AUGUST 23RD
PITCHFORK HOSTS THE DEBUT OF FIRST SINGLE
The record is his third to be released on Kill Rock Stars following his debut “Son” and an eponymously titled sophomore effort. The street date for the release is August 19th, however, Pitchfork will be hosting the premier of the record’s first single “If I Only Knew” starting today.
This record truly represents the work of a masterful young artist and creative force at the top of his game. Often in the past his voice has filled the void left by what were comparatively sparse arrangements. On “Madam Owl” (the name comes from an unused potential song-title) a bent towards the baroque allows Jeff’s voice to find its harmonious place in an ensemble of timeless instruments, rather than fill the role of the instruments themselves. This is really truly one of the year’s most impressive releases.
