An album I keep coming back to again and again. These initially subtle but dynamic soundscapes accompany some of the best lyrics I've ever heard. Every turn of phrase comes with it my renewed appreciation. Thx to everyone involved.
Favorite track: Song in a Cup.
this album makes me misty eyed every time i listen. super glad to have more babytooth songs in the world, i've been hooked since first discovering isabel's music via bud tapes livestream gig. listen to this on repeat.
Favorite track: Nothing.
Babytooth is the full band project of Isabel Zacharias, local radio host and songstress. Evoking and rivaling Jason Molina and Sun Kil Moon for their lyrical and melodic chops, Zacharias's songs are held up further by the varied rock and folk instrumentation of the rest of the band featuring members of other local Portland groups, Yellow Room and Long Distance Husband. "Thataway" is an enthralling first venture for a group that is already bursting at the seams with greatness.
digital sales are split between Don't Shoot PDX and Portland Action Medics
i remember discovering the washboard abs by complete chance, by scrolling through similar artists to a band. i clicked on their top song, and here we are. i am mesmerised by its composition and sondermann's beautiful lyricism is the biggest inspiration for my own music. jake
