Singer-songwriter Haroula Rose,
who first pinged the indie radar in 2009 with her debut EP Someday and subsequently wowed critics earlier this year with her
Andy Lemaster-produced These Open Roads,
has just unveiled a video for the luminous album track “Duluth.” It’s got a take-your-breath away
quality that’s as powerful as it is haunting, and if you spotted it as being a
Mason Jennings cover, bingo. Check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

As noted, the album was produced
by Andy Lemaster (Bright Eyes, The Good Life, Now It’s Overhead, REM, Azure
Ray, Conor Oberst), who recorded it in Athens, GA at Chase Park Transduction Studio
as well as his living room. Its  twelve
tracks feature contributions from John Neff (Drive By Truckers, Japancakes) on
pedal steel, Heather Macintosh (Elf Power, Neutral Milk Hotel), Brian Wright
(Waco Tragedies), Blair Sinta (Damien Rice, Stevie Nicks, My Brightest Diamond,
Annie Lennox) Jason Kanakis (Rachael Yamagata, Brett Dennen, Joshua Radin) Sad
Brad Smith, Joseph Karnes (Jesca Hoop, John Cale), and Zac Rae (Pedestrian,
Sara Lov, My Brightest Diamond) who co-produced and played on “Duluth.” In
addition her friend Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, O+S, Art In Manila) appears
providing additional vocals.   Fink also
connected her with Lemaster.

 

Says Rose, of working with
Lemaster, “At Andy’s house we could hear birds chirping and trains passing by,
and Athens has
such an atmosphere that it was easy to find inspiration.   Most of the time we would just stay up all
night writing, trying out ideas or hanging out and recording different
sounds.  At the studio I was stoked to be
in a space where so many other bands and artists that have inspired me got to
work and had made amazing records.” 

 

Rose performs this Sunday, Dec. 11, in Los Angeles. Dates, etc.: www.myspace.com/haroularose
