Run For Cover Records to Issue Nicole Dollanganger’sObservatory Mansions & Ode to Dawn Weiner: Embarrassing Love Stories on Vinyl & Cassette
On Tour Now w/ Elvis Depressedly & Teen Suicide
Fall Headlining Dates Announced
Run For Cover Records is excited to announce that they will be issuing two of Nicole Dollanganger‘s LPs on vinyl and cassette for the first time, 2013’s Ode to Dawn Weiner: Embarrassing Love Songs and 2014’s Observatory Mansions. Both are available for pre-order now and will be officially released on October 28, 2016.
FADER has a new interview with Nicole about the records as well as a new track, “Observatory Mansions II“, a full band version of the Observatory Mansions title track that will be available as a bonus track on the record. Ode to Dawn Weiner will feature the bonus track “Chapel“, which had an incredible sync in the most recent season of The Walking Dead.
Nicole Dollanganger announced a handful of fall headlining US tour dates today and is currently on tour with Run For Cover bands Elvis Depressedly and Teen Suicide (all tour dates below).
Since 2012, Nicole Dollanganger has been quietly crafting her own world. Over a number of self-released albums recorded mostly in her own bedroom and bathroom, her signature style of gothic folk is inspired by countless influences, none more than the archetype of the love song. Dollanganger’s signature lyricism is front-and-center – usually accompanied by barely more than a few lonesome chords, narratives are idyllic, yet haunting – dream-like, yet startlingly real.
This Fall, Run For Cover Records will be reissuing two early-yet-masterful pieces of Nicole Dollanganger’s catalog on vinyl and cassette: 2013’s Ode To Dawn Wiener: Embarrassing Love Songs & 2014’s Observatory Mansions. The thesis of Ode to Dawn Wiener is as straightforward as its subtitle, but over ten songs it becomes clear that there is much more to these songs than what they offer at the surface. Observatory Mansions shows Nicole’s songwriting progressing, with reverb-soaked guitars, echoing synths & stirring samples coming together only to intensify the pull of her stories of love, violence, sexuality and death – all of which would be horrifying if they weren’t so enchanting – a recurring yet poetic tension in Nicole Dollanganger’s world.
