Visiting Weinland

From my very first listen of the very first track (listen to it below) of La Lamentor, the second full-length album from Weinland, the very first thing to come to mind was Neil Young. The music has just got that slow, measured southern rock cadence to it, and Adam Shearer's vocals seal the deal.

As you might guess from the album's title, this time around the material is a little darker than their debut: songs of struggle and loss with their dark inspiration hailing from Shearer's own experiences. Its classic Americana infused instrumentation and how it carries a tragic beauty to it mirrors some of Young's quieter, acoustic introspective work (think The Needle And The Damage Done). Don't expect to find any anthemic rockers or protest songs, just eleven tracks of contemplative material.
