Product Description

Erin McKeown's newest studio release, Hundreds Of Lions, is an intelligently written, catchy album - a perfect blend of up-tempo and slow acoustically layered tracks, resulting in harmonious, gorgeous songs that truly display Erin's versatility as an artist.

Hundreds Of Lions was crafted over three years - an unprecedented, luxurious amount of time that allowed Erin to nurture new songs to life, and gave producer Sam Kassirer the freedom to produce a watershed, modern Erin McKeown album, with her voice as its center. Sam and Erin retreated to a farmhouse studio in rural New England and experimented. They squished acoustic sounds through synthesizers. They programmed electronic squiggles to mingle with orchestral strings recorded in a country church down the street. Brass and woodwinds, traditionally last, were recorded very early on so they built the core of the record instead of just being layered on top.

The result is a record fit to bookend the first ten years of a dynamic career of a unique American artist.

Review

"... [Hundreds of Lions is] cause for roaring. The plucked strings and woodwinds of 'To A Hammer' gets things started and transitions into the piano-driven marvel of 'Santa Cruz,' confirming that McKeown is back and better than ever. What follows are some of McKeown's most memorable compositions, including 'The Foxes,' 'All That Time You Missed,' 'The Rascal' and the evocative '(Put The Fun Back in) the Funeral.'" -- SouthernVoice.com, October 23, 2009

"...a singer/songwriter of vast skill and seemingly endless imagination. She's quietly building a legacy of high-caliber pop music that's as universal as it is idiosyncratic, and Hundreds of Lions is an essential addition to that canon." -- Stereosubversion.com, October 13, 2009

"If the first tune, 'The Foxes,' is representative of the record, well, wow. Plinky, metronomic guitar on the verses opening up to gorgeous swells of keyboards on the chorus." -- Listendammit.com, August 12, 2009

"McKeown continues to distinguish herself with clever lyrics and instrumentation..." -- Paste magazine, October 13, 2009

"McKeown is really at her finest..." -- Washington Post, October 12, 2009

"On first listen, there was a dazzling presence to the songs as new, surprising elements kept emerging.[...] This is a fine album with which to introduce McKeown to new fans who will surely be surprised how fun and how fancy folk can be." -- PopMatters.com, October 14, 2009

"[a]...concoction of different genres and styles, masterfully delivered with class and a wink of an eye." -- Modern Acoustic Reviews (reviewsmodernacoustic.blogspot.com), September 09
