The project of songwriter Stewart Bronaugh and drummer Joshua Jaeger, Lionlimb began recording Shoo in 2015 with Robin Eaton after returning from an Australian tour playing guitar and drums in Angel Olsen’s band. Bronaugh and Jaeger started by tracking live drums and piano, and then for weeks Bronaugh filled up reel after reel, layering compulsively over their recordings. In the spring, Bronaugh and Eaton began the task of peeling away the layers.

The resulting sessions proved to be a departure from the duo’s previous recordings with a shift toward jazz, rock and soul with the addition of saxophone and Fender Rhodes. The album’s influences can be traced back to Miles Davis’ On the Corner, Jack London, Schumann, Elliott Smith and Jackson Pollock.

PRAISE FOR LIONLIMB:

“It’s wonky but affecting, murky yet melodic, a lo-fi take on 70s FM radio rock with an air of mystery and melancholy” – The Guardian

“full of hooks and catchy one-liners ” – BEAT

“A classy take on easy-listening soul that’s usually played by bands that are older and dourer and still don’t pay such sweet homage to Elliott Smith.” – Loud & Quiet

“‘Turnstile’ comes alive under the gleaming light of its instrumentation which sits somewhere between the gnarly pastures of Van Occupanther-era Midlake and the more robust side of America’s current crop of alt. rock partakers.” – GoldFlakePaint

“‘Domino’…is backed by a lively collection of instruments, including buttery horns. The result is an airy groove that’s further lightened by Bronaugh’s breezy vocals.”  – The FADER

“‘Domino’…[is] the horn-inflected boom-bap Elliott Smith song of my dreams.” – Stereogum

“‘Domino’…[has] a Bowie-inspired funk sound buttressed by brass and booming drum groove. The song shifts and swells across nearly four minutes propelled forward by Bronaugh’s ballad-built vocals.” – Paste

“‘Domino’…has a melancholic melodic slant and a gently bumping rhythm that puts it in perfect Elliott Smith territory – smart, thoughtful, with emotion embedded in every rolling movement. It’s an elegantly constructed track gilded with piano and horn parts that perfectly complement Bronaugh’s vocal delivery… It’s layered, deliberate, but never feels forced.” – Impose
