Pinegrove - Skylight FLAC album
leaked album i found somewhere.
Skylight is the third studio album by Pinegrove, self-released on September 28, 2018. The album was produced by the band's frontman, singer-songwriter Evan Stephens Hall, as well as guitarist Sam Skinner. It was recorded at a home the band lived in in upstate New York in mid-2017. Pinegrove had risen to fame on the heels of its sophomore record, Cardinal, released on independent label Run for Cover.
Skylight, their third record, was originally meant to come out on Run for Cover, like Cardinal. The band and label mutually agreed that Pinegrove would self-release Skylight and donate the proceeds to charity. There is no right way to return from such serious allegations; some feel there should be no return at all. It is impossible to ignore the accusations against Hall while listening to Skylight. At times, the album can feel subconsciously remorseful, but this is almost a twisted coincidence.
Skylight remains mostly unchanged in the year since it was initially meant to be released and it was meant to be the holy grail that. 84. Warm and encompassing, I actually prefer this record to 'Cardinal. This record feels more cohesive and more focused than their debut, and I prefer the overall aesthetic here.
The vague statement generated much confusion and animus from Pinegrove’s devoted fans as they reconciled with the distressing news. But last week, the music publication Pitchfork released a long-form profile piece titled Reckoning with Pinegrove, which examined the causes of Pinegrove’s hiatus and how they have attempted to resolve Hall’s allegations.
Pinegrove’s ‘Skylight’ Is An Entrancing Indie-Folk Album That Can’t Exist Outside Its Context. Of course, that’s coming from someone who considers themselves to be a fan of Pinegrove’s much-adored album Cardinal but doesn’t, like, hold that fandom as a core element of my identity. Reading Jenn Pelly’s deep-dive into the Pinegrove situation is a quick reminder of the many young people that do identify that way. They have tattoos on their body that match those of bandleader Hall, they have lyrics in their Twitter bios and closets full of merch.
Pinegrove will self-release a new album, Skylight, this Friday (9/28). Proceeds from the Bandcamp sales of the album will go towards three charities: the Voting Rights Project, the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention, and Musicares. They also plan to play shows later this year. In an extensive new Pitchfork piece, Evan Stephens Hall and the band address the statement they released last year and their year-long hiatus. In the statement, Hall said that he was accused of sexual coercion by someone he was involved with for a short but intense period of time.
