BAYONET RECORDS to release LIONLIMB’S “TURNSTILE” 7” on 18th September
Bayonet Records is excited to announce the release of Lionlimb’s “Turnstile” 7” on 18th September. Lionlimb is Nashville native Stewart Bronaugh’s recently resurrected project. Originally started in 2010, the project was put on hold as Bronaugh worked as a day laborer in Chicago and San Francisco before making his return to the Midwest. It was then that he began collaborating with drummer Joshua Jaeger. Shortly thereafter, the two joined Angel Olsen’s backing band both on tour and on her seismic Burn Your Fire For No Witness (Jagjaguwar, 2014).
The recent revival of Lionlimb exhibits a thematic shift including jazz elements and Bowie-esque guitar arrangements, complemented by Bronaugh’s effortless vocals. With Jaeger on drums and production by Nashville’s Robin Eaton, the upcoming Turnstile 7″ is Lionlimb’s first official release.
A-side “Turnstile” debuts via The FADER and Bronaugh says of the track, “A turnstile allows one person to pass at a time and usually will only accept you after you’ve paid, whether it’s public transit or a pay toilet in Germany, your relationship to a person can be like that. You can also view a turnstile either as something to let you in or as a thing to keep you out.”
Lionlimb will tour with Whitney in the US starting next week and make a stop in Brooklyn at Shea Stadium where they’ll play with Bayonet Records’ label mates Frankie Cosmos. A full list of dates is below.
