A WEATHER: EVERYDAY BALLOONS IN STORES TODAY, TRACK PREMIERE, FIRST NATIONAL TOUR ANNOUNCED

A Weather’s sophomore album, Everyday Balloons, arrives in stores today!  Called “intimate and atmospheric” and “breathy lullabies” by Alternative Press, the album expands upon the understated, hushed beauty and depth of the Portland, OR, band’s 2008 debut, Cove, with more electric guitar-driven songs.  A Weather has gained a reputation as a gem of the northwestern city’s thriving music scene, and Everyday Balloons is already earning serious praise in the local press again: the Portland Mercury’s End Hits blog recently glowed, “…the record is an absolute stunner, bound to be one of the finest albums you’ll hear all year.

AOL Music’s Spinner premiered new album track “Third Of Life” yesterday as the blog’s ‘Free MP3 of the Day’ (download here).  Spinner is also currently streaming Everyday Balloons in its entirety here.  Early last month, MagnetMagazine.com premiered the first mp3 off the album, “Giant Stairs;” the song can also now be downloaded here.

A Weather will be hitting the road in April for a month-long tour, beginning April 10th with a hometown show at The Woods in Portland and wrapping up at the Jackpot in Lawrence, Kansas.  Full itinerary is below.

“Everyday Balloons” is available for purchase at the Team Love webstore.

Announcing A Weather’s “Everyday Balloons”

We’re so excited to announce that our very own A Weather will release their second full length LP, Everyday Balloons, in March of 2010. If you haven’t had a chance to dig into the band’s back catalog, check out some mp3s from their debut full-length, Cove.

spiders, snakes

screw up your courage

oh my stars

Everyday Balloons both builds upon and maintains the intimate, understated beauty and depth of the band’s 2008 debut, Cove. Opener “Third of Life” immediately introduces A Weather’s more electric guitar-driven side and newly broadened dynamics, while the hushed pop of “Giant Stairs” steadily swells to a gently triumphant anthem. Often built around the interplay between Aaron Gerber’s and Aaron Krenkel’s spare guitar work, each song features Gerber’s and Sarah Winchester’s serene yet richly emotive, breathy vocals that alternately intertwine and soar alone across aching, lush melodies. Delicately nuanced themes of comfort and fear, routine and deviation, and the tender vulnerability of hope thread through the album, which culminates with the epic exploration of spiritual exhaustion found in final track “Lay Me Down.”

A Weather at Holocene, Winter Wonderland

A Weather will open for The Point Juncture WA’s CD Release show this thursday at Holocene in Portland, OR.
Second, A Weather has been hard at work on a cover of “Winter Wonderland” for the upcoming Willamette Week Christmas Compilation.

A Weather show in Houston tomorrow
