With a charming deadpan, Portland, Oregon artist Sara Renberg tells absurdist story songs. It's smart, understated indie pop with a sense of humor. Recorded by Ephriam Nagler at K Records' Dub Narcotic Studio.
On blue cassettes with hand-typed lables, insert, and digital download code. Cover art by Martha Grover (Somnambulist, One More for the People). Released on Antiquated Future Records.
"If released a decade and a half ago, indiepop bible Chickfactor would have been all over The Tall Calm...Portland-based Sara Renberg has an observational honesty and surrealness that reminds me of early Magnetic Fields and Stephen Malkmus. Songs aren’t mere moments, they’re epiphanies." - Chiara Grassia, BMA Magazinecategories: Sara Renberg- Assimilation Blues
