Owing more to the city’s darker corners than its sun and glamor, Los Angeles-based musician HT Heartache is set to release her sophomore album, Sundowner. The follow up to her 2010 debut, Swing Low, Sundowner is a slow burn, marked by a spectral voice that lingers long after its songs have ended.
I’m skipping town for a while
Heading out East
I am a woman on the run
I dare you to stop me
Hooking you from those opening lines of “Trenton,” Heartache saunters to the flirtatious “Cowboy Poetry” and the foreboding “Ruby” with its refrain of “Ruby red lips, silver avarice and diamonds in her eyes.”
Fraught with palpable mystery, Sundowner’s stark songs will leave you cautiously smitten with HT Heartache. Available tomorrow, you can pre-order Sundowner on vinyl here.
