Ignorance, the new album from Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman aka The Weather Station - her debut for Mississippi label Fat Possum Records - is sensuous, ravishing, as hi fi a record as Lindeman has ever made, breaking into pure pop at moments, at others a dense wilderness of notes; a deeply rhythmic, deeply painful record that feels more urgent, more clear than her work ever has. The reviews aren't lying. This is one of THE records of 2021.
“majestic” - New Yorker
“The music is frantic and gorgeous, a sensory overload.” - MOJO, Album of the Month, 4 stars
“The album ends with the sound of a foot releasing the piano’s sustain pedal. Perfect.” - Uncut, Album of the Month, 9/10
“Fiona Apple called for bolt cutters in the spring; Tamara Lindeman has brought us a sledgehammer for the fall.” - Pitchfork Best New Music 9.0
“Shades of Talk Talk and Sensual World-era Kate Bush glimmer through Tamara Lindeman’s comeback, which reinvents the Canadian folk-rock outfit as art-pop aesthetes with a sharply surreal line in political commentary.” - The Guardian
