We’re big fans of Loma’s 2018 debut, and are very happy to find out that the Shearwater and Cross Record supergroup are back for a second album, Don’t Shy Away. The band had intended to split after a triumphant world tour, ending at the Sub Pop SF30 festival, but upon hearing that Brian Eno was a fan, the band began to reconsider. Eno himself features as the producer on the album’s final track, Homing, and the album also features the touring lineup of Loma and a full horn section, altogether contributing to a richer and more full sounding album than their sparse debut, recorded over months in rural Texas. This is sure to be another masterpiece of slowcore restraint!
Don’t Shy Away is released on October 23rd and is available to pre-order on CD, limited first run dark green LP.
