Pinegrove have released the surprise new live album Elsewhere 2.
The record, made up of material taken from the band’s recent Marigold and Skylight records, as been released as a ‘pay-what-you-want’ project with all profits being donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
“This recording marks a record of the recent past when people could gather together by the hundreds,” frontman Evan Stephens Hall said in a press release. “I also see it as a note from a future where people will gather and applaud again.”
He added: “The crisp percussive clatter of all those hands, people chatting to their friends or people they just met, going ‘woo,’ singing along—it’s very surreal and nearly heartbreaking to hear now, the tapping dents & divots of rain against my bedroom window, skylit and glowing overcast tonight. It’s a sideways smile hearing so many people together, but a smile nonetheless.
“Thank you to anyone who came to these concerts.” Hall continued. “Thank you to anyone listening now. We appreciate you all so much and look forward to playing music again for you soon. Stay safe, much love.”
