Lewiston By The Sea

by Tucker Theodore

Fej Scrapes 03:20
Terminator 03:15


"Lewiston by the Sea" is the fifth solo album from cultish noise-folk and post-rock weirdo Tucker Theodore. Originating from skeleton recordings made at the start of the pandemic—holed up in an apartment above a bottle exchange center, with just a cheap synth and a guitar—the album evolved through long-distance collaborations over the past year into a sprawling epic.

With vocal contributions from Madeline Johnston of Midwife, Colleen Johnson of Flying Circles, and Jeff Shannon of If It Ain't Breakfast Don't Fix It, among others, the album's 14 songs push and pull between narrators and tones, lyric-driven pieces and instrumentals, each song different than the last. Tracked and mixed between long days working his family farm, this is Tucker Theodore's biggest, wildest, and most multi-layered effort yet.

"music like Tucker Theodore‘s has a tendency to get stuck in your head; it has this circular nature, almost creating a pattern to your listening, even where no pattern exists. There are some slow moments of build in here too, letting the noise elements run through your veins, sending little nervous shivers at each little twist and turn" - Austin Town Hall

"[an] artist on the fringe, working outside of, or even in triumphant opposition to, the contemporary Playlist Age." - Various Small Flames

"Consistent with the artist's genre defying creative approach, the new album goes through passages of experimental, psychedelic and gothic folk, as well as dark Americana, noise rock and slowcore...Still, the directness in Theodore's writing speaks for itself" - Destroy/Exist
