San Francisco’s Lowcaster have arisen from their own ashes to produce a complex and emotionally mature sophomore effort, Flames Arise. A quantum leap above their rollicking 2016 debut, Flames Arise is born from “two years of tragedy and loss”, according to the band.
Susie McMullan from Brume supplies background vocals on one of the featured tracks, Shore up the Ashes, adding another layer of harmony and emotion to an already amazing song. Flames Arise is already a contender for one of my favorite albums of 2019.
Standout tracks: Flames Bemoan the Tide, Shore up the Ashes
If you’re in the area, catch Lowcaster at their album debut show at SF’s Thee Parkside with Brume on November 9, 2019! In the meantime, buy or stream Flames Arise at the usual outlets.
