Very proud to announce the release of our new studio album, Evening Machines, available October 5th. A lot of love and care went into this one, and we are so thrilled about how it came out. Listen to the first single, “Chemicals,”

The South African-born troubadour’s first album of originals since 2013 adds an array of new textures to the hushed-indie-folk template he perfected on “Big Black Car” and “The Stable Song.” Lead single “Chemicals” pits the singer’s Zach Condon-esque croon and airy falsetto against faint string drones that recall his 2016 collaboration with the Colorado Symphony; “Caves” mixes electronic static, wordless harmonies and heavily reverbed instruments for an intoxicating rush, one of the few moments where Evening Machines hints at “rock.” But Isakov largely sticks to dreamy, hypnotic soundscapes like the layers of feedback on “Powder” or the reverse effects and ghostly vocals of “Where You Gonna Go”  beautiful collisions of acoustic instruments, Isakov’s soothing vocals and otherworldly noise.
