About a month back, Tamara Lindeman, aka The Weather Station, released a new single titled “Thirty” along with news of an upcoming S/T album coming on the October horizons (the 6th to be exact.) Now, in addition to the song, we have a minimalist video as its company.

The video is sans-frill as it focuses on Lindeman through a black and white lens performing “Thirty” before a group of men. Standing in the shadows with furrowed brows and crossed arms, the men seem to be critiquing Lindeman as she’s cast in the vulnerable spotlight. Continue reading →

As a young woman, you quickly learn growing up that turning the big “three-oh” is basically the equivalent to getting the plague. Somehow, some way, you must escape this fate at all costs. Well, unless you’re a young Jennifer Garner character in a spectacular rom-com, that is. A magazine headlining “flirty, thirty, and thriving?” I scoff at such lies.

Canadian singer-songwriter, Tamara Lindeman, does too. She knows the binary routes society has set out for women approaching their third decade of life: “children and suburbia or some sort of cartoonish loneliness.” Working as her project The Weather Station, Lindeman delves into this sexist matter on new single “Thirty,” which will be included on her upcoming self-titled album out on October 6th via Paradise of Bachelors.

Fronted by Ontario born singer / songwriter Tamara Lindeman, The Weather Station has made the best indie-folk record of the year so far. Loyalty comes out on May 12th on Paradise of Bachelors Records. It is the band’s third album and you can draw a line from it straight back to Joni Mitchell’s 1972 beauty, For The Roses. It is vulnerable, intimate, alluring and graceful acoustic music, inspired by bluegrass as much by The Books, whose music Lindeman is a fan of.
