Montreal’s Leif Vollebekk bring us New Ways, his eagerly anticipated follow-up to the Polaris Prize finalist 'Twin Solitude'.
New Ways is a record that lives between the kick and the snare, in that instant of feeling before the backbeat. This new album is a document of everything Vollebekk felt, the way each moment arrived and moved through him. 'Twin Solitude' was about self-reflection, New Ways is about engaging and changing, touching and being touched. It’s a physical record, with louder and tighter grooves, and the rawest lyrics the musician has ever recorded. A portrait of beauty, desire, longing, risk, remembrance—without an instant of regret.
There’s the heat of the night and the cool blue of morning, hints of Prince and Bill Withers, the limbo of a lover’s transatlantic flight. 'Hot Tears' is all hot-blooded memory. 'Apalachee Plain' is a clamorous goodbye. 'I’m Not Your Lover' would be a perfect love-song were it not for its chorus—a song that lets two opposites be true at once.
