LISA/LIZA: "The Matador Pt 2" premiere & Momentary Glance pre-order Posted 16 Oct 2018
Momentary Glance, the second LP by Liza Victoria's psych folk recording project, Lisa/Liza, will be released by Orindal Records on November 30, 2018. Vinyl LPs, CDs, digital dowloads, & special colored vinyl bundles (featuring an exclusive vinyl color, poster & bonus tape) are now available for pre-order HERE.
Momentary Glance is Victoria's first album of electric guitar
recordings, half of which feature the recording debut of her live band
(comprised of fellow Mainers Jonathan Downs, Devin Ivy & Pete
Swegart). Momentary Glance was recorded & mixed by Efrim Manuel
Menuck (of Godspeed! You Black Emperor & Thee Silver Mt. Zion
Memorial Orchestra) at his hotel2tango studio in Montreal, with the
exception of the song “Tea Kettle,” which was recorded & mixed by
Colby Nathan at New Fruit Collective in Portland, Maine.
This morning, Stereogum premiered the epic first single, "The Matador Pt 2," calling it "a meditative eight minutes of downtuned strumming and world-weary
searching that serves as a continuation of a theme she first explored on
from 2014. “I turned around to see the stars/ It wasn’t where the
answers are,” she sings, letting those hanging questions fill up the
empty space around her. It’s patient and enveloping, and in comparison
to the earlier version of this song, it allows even more room for quiet
and shaky contemplation.
"Victoria has an uncanny knack for intense atmospherics — her debut album
utilized only her voice and an acoustic guitar, and with her
forthcoming sophomore album, Momentary Glance, she opens up her
sound. It’s her first electric album, made with her new live band and
recorded by Godspeed! You Black Emperor’s Efrim Manuel Menuck at his
studio in Montreal. It’s a collection of gently unfurling tracks
centered around Victoria’s placid voice and an intoxicating static buzz."
