RESTORATIONS STREAM NEW SONG ‘TINY PRAYERS’ FROM LP3, OUT 27th Oct
Last month, Philadelphia’s Restorations took the community by storm with the premiere of ‘Separate Songs’ and its breathtaking video directed by Mitchell Wojcik and John Komar (via NPR Music). They announced their headlining US tour with Self Defense Family and The Smith Street Band, kicking off October 24 in Asbury Park and taking all three bands to The Fest in Gainesville, FL.
Today, feast your ears upon the latest track from LP3, ‘Tiny Prayers.’ A non-stop mover-and-shaker of a track, singer/guitarist Jon Loudon says it’s all about “being cooped up in the winter.” Surprisingly, the song has a serious summer vibe to it, with a twangy riff on a seemingly infinite loop throughout the 4+ minutes of this arena-ready, windows-down rock song. Jon continues, “There’s a ton of layering going on in here that was a lot of fun to put together. Play this as loud as possible.”
After two successful full-lengths, a number of 7’’s and special releases, Restorations made a solid choice in returning to Miner Street Studio to work with longtime friend and collaborator Jonathan Low on LP3. Responsible for not only all of Restorations past discography, Low has also recently had a hand in the massive success of records from The National, The War On Drugs, Modern Baseball, The Menzingers, and more. The trust Low and the band has been building over the years is absolute these days and the result is a record that fills a room even when coming out of laptop speakers.
LP3 is a marriage of big sounds and meaty songwriting. Clever, sure, but strong is a better description. Pummeling and rumbling without an ounce of goonishness. Smart people going hard, Restorations has taken every potential cliché and tossed them out the window to create the most memorable and standout record of their career to date.
