Aunt Martha recorded this EP in 2011 while on tour in motel rooms. MOTEL ROOMS. Give the EP a listen and you will feel your jaw drop. The quality in these songs is completely unexpected for something recorded in a motel room. Much more subdued than their Norway, ME release but that’s probably from trying to keep the noise level to a minimum for other guests. Nevertheless, the muted vocals underplay the lyrics in such a complimentary way. Such calming melodies and smart lyrics make La La Lonesome one of the best EP’s I’ve heard in a long time.
I’ve had this EP for a few months now and have finally given it the good listen that it deserves. Do yourself a favor and spend a little time listening to it!
Hey Aunt Martha, tour in New York sometime eh?
