[streaming] Lonesome Leash – Momentum

Taken from “Precious Futures”, out October 30 on Mind Rider Records.

Lonesome Leash is the solo moniker of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Walt McClements. Known for previous involvement in the bands Dark Dark Dark, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship?, Lonesome Leash channels all of these musical experiences into a lean and immaculately disheveled solo affair.

At the end of 2012, McClements found himself at a crossroads, unsure of his place in his longtime home of New Orleans and seeing many long running projects losing momentum. Facing this, he embarked on a manic solo journey, releasing debut LP “I Am No Captain” in January of 2013 and playing over 200 shows that year between the US, Mexico, and Europe. A bold introduction to McClements’ musical world, “I Am No Captain” trades in the breathless ecstatic joy and fatalistic romanticism that pervades New Orleans, but translates to any location and into any language. Anchored by the sinuous accordion sound that’s become a McClements trademark, the album takes some mad aesthetic stabs, incorporating drum loops, brass flourishes and lush layers of feedback, in the end creating a future-rustic musical aesthetic.

“Momentum” is featured as the latest “single of the week” of the radio show L’Attimo Fuggente.
