|Palehound Dry Food Limited Vinyl LP + Download
· Palehound, the musical alias of 21-year-old Boston-based guitarist and songwriter Ellen Kempner, releases the ‘Dry Food’ album on Heavenly Recordings.
· Recorded with Gabe Wax (Wye Oak, Speedy Ortiz), ‘Dry Food’ is full of sonic and emotional twists and turns, written as it was at a time in Kempner’s life that was defined by instability and uncertainty.
· “The way some people have a way with words, Palehound singer/songwriter Ellen Kempner has a way with a guitar: Looped lines tumble out in the knotty configurations worthy of a sailor’s handiwork, or maybe of academic writing.” - SPIN Album Of The Week
· “‘Dry Food’ confronts the point it’s been evading: kidding yourself is no way to recover, and comfort offers little impetus to move on. Palehound’s discomfiting, unflinching debut suggests she knew it all along.” - Pitchfork (8/10)
· “Palehound’s ‘Dry Food’ is one of the best albums this year because it doesn’t reinvent any wheels so much as the axis the wheels spin on.” - The Observer
· Vinyl format includes digital download card.
