released March 18, 2016

The first full-length from The Washboard Abs. Gorgeous, textural bedroom pop from Olympia, Washington. The beginning of something great.

"Sondermann’s music is an entirely captivating affair...not to be ignored but to sit as something of a distant soundtrack, like an old radio waves drifting out of the windows while you idly recline on some rickety old porch." - GoldFlakePaint

"From opening number 'Dust,' straight through closer, 'Ladder,' you are treated to some of the finest pop music you're likely to hear this year." - All Magazine

"Delicate chamber pop for the lost at sea. At once nostalgic, dreamy, ethereal, haunting, and beautiful like a sunset remembered on the last day of something big. Intimate, minimal, and full of wonder." - Cassette Gods

"elegant and melancholic, barren-yet-lush, folksy tunes that call to mind a cluttered old room...Old lovers, past days, dead flowers, new loves yet to come." - Fadeawayradiate's Top 10 Indie Releases of 2016

"a dreamy, raw and emotional sound with gut wrenching lyrics that may lead you to believe The Washboard Abs are wise beyond their years. And perhaps they are." - Next Northwest

"a singer-songwriter who isn't merely content to wallow in melancholy, but who knows enough about human nature and the passing of time to anticipate the future, rather than dread or fear it." - Weekly Volcano

"an album that gently wakes up your senses and makes you feel. For any work of art to accomplish that is surely a home run." - ThrdCoast

"some of the nicest, most heartfelt indie pop around...The Washboard Abs make songs sad and sentimental without ever stepping into melodrama." - Wake the Dead

"Captivating, heartfelt and dreamy, this new cassette, Have U Scanned Ur Club Card? is a soft yet bewitching album." - K Records

"Have U Scanned Ur Club Card gracefully goes through bedroom indie music as Clarke Sondermann sings somber and reflective lyrics" - Melodic Tree's Albums of the Year

"Dry leaves rest in an old wooden boat on a lake made of echoes." - Small Albums
