Concubines - I've Tried Subtlety (CD)

$ 12.99


Release Date: 06/02/15

Classy female-sung indiepop with a cool, breezy jangle / RIYL: Ivy, Cinnamon, the Postmarks

I knew of the Concubines because they were once an IndiePage (you know, back when that was a thing), and this album was actually recorded over a decade ago, but the band never found a suitable outlet to release it. A couple months ago, I came across the mp3 files for a cd-r of this album that I lost long ago, and immediately looked up the chief songwriter, Jeff Whiteaker, and asked him if he'd like to release the record posthumously on Jigsaw, and he went for it! One mastering session later, and here we have this, the 'lost' album from a band that just never made it. What does it sound like, you ask? Well, this would've fit absolutely perfectly on Shelflife Records the first time around, among bands like Sushi, the Autocollants, the Arrogants and the Castaway Stones. Classy indiepop with Rachel's strong voice (think Sarah Cracknell or Tracey Thorn) and a cool, breezy jangle throughout. No idea why this pearl was overlooked back then, but it's certainly a welcome addition to our catalog now!
