Empty Orchestra’s music video for “The Audience” has been released and pre-orders for their album, “One More Time, All Together Now…” have gone up at The Risc Store.  

Empty Orchestra’s new album for Pentimento Music Co., “One More Time, All Together Now…,” is a powerful new musical statement that is at once diverse and cohesive. Produced over the course of almost two years, this collection of songs was recorded in a variety of spaces in Chicago, Illinois, and in the band’s hometown of Flint, Michigan—including living rooms, bank vaults, basements, abandoned buildings, and professional recording studios—with longtime engineer and founding member Mark Michalik (the Swellers, Into It. Over It, We Are The Union). Over the album’s 12 diverse songs, Empty Orchestra’s legion of players (a dozen members contribute to recording, and the band operates as a musical collective in the studio) simultaneously define and defy labels like “Americana,” “punk,” “folk” and others with expert musicianship and impeccable songwriting.

So what is this album “about?” Well, the human condition, of course. The Big Things via the little things. It’s about the possibilities and limitations of community. It’s about the beautiful and dangerous act of performance. It’s about the politics and poetics of “home,” and what it means to be a part of a city or a band or a family. It’s about love, and labor unions, and violence.

So what does this album “sound like?” Well, it sometimes sounds like well-crafted indie / folk-rock—songs like “Broken Record” and “Trust Me” feature warm chords, pedal steel and harmonica. “The Audience” and “Lo and Behold!” on the other hand, are taut and angular, and hum with dark intensity. And acoustic-based songs like “No Such Place” and “We Have Ways of Making You Talk” deliver heartfelt yet cerebral lyrics with beautiful harmonies.

Performer Magazine ran a feature today on the making of Empty Orchestra’s new music video for the song “The Audience”.  The video was filmed in their hometown of Flint, Michigan at the historic Capitol Theater.  Check out the article and the video.

We here at Pentimento Music Co. are proud to announce two things today. First - we have a new website that has been long in the works and we hope you can check it out (www.pentimentomusic.com). Secondly - once you’re at the site, take a moment to check out the newly signed, Empty Orchestra. We are excited to work with them on their new record and beyond. From Flint, Michigan - Empty Orchestra has drawn comparisons to Tom Waits, The Hold Steady and Cursive. They’ve released two previous full lengths and a handful of 7” splits. Their music will also be included on the upcoming PMC Sampler. Enjoy.
