Here is the blurb with all the inside info.

One year ago, The Weather Station released Ignorance, one of 2021’s most praised and far-reaching albums. Tamara Lindeman has announced a new album How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars. Today she presents its lead single and video, Endless Time.

How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is intended to be heard as a companion piece to Ignorance. These are songs written at the same time that connect emotionally and deal with many of the same themes. Themes like connection, conflict, love, birds, and climate feelings. Recorded live in just three days, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is achingly intimate; full of breath, silence, and detail.  The Weather Station - How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars



Not long after completing Ignorance, Lindeman decided to make this album on her own terms. Fronting the money herself and not notifying the labels. She assembled a new band, and communicated a new ethos; the music should feel ungrounded, with space, silence, and sensitivity above all else.

On this record, there are no drums and no percussion. In the absence of rhythm, time stretches and becomes elastic. The band is comprised some of the best players in the Toronto jazz and improvisation scene. Christine Bougie on guitar and lap steel, Karen Ng on saxophone and clarinet, Ben Whiteley on upright bass, Ryan Driver on piano, flute, and vocals, and Tania Gill on wurlitzer, rhodes, and pianet.

How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars was recorded live off the floor at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Studios from March 10-12, 2020. With Jean Martin co-producing, Lindeman sang and played piano live while the band improvised their accompaniment. When the band entered the studio, Covid-19 was a news item, not front of mind, but just three days later, everything had changed. On today’s ‘Endless Time,’ Lindeman sings about a feeling of unease, interweaving relational loss with anxiety about the impending climate crisis.

You might argue that the underlying theme of Ignorance was vulnerability. Vulnerability that goes unnoticed and unacknowledged, and the damage that results from that erasure. On How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, this vulnerability is made manifest. It is an album of immense sensitivity, a recording of a band and a person daring to reach towards softness without apology.
