Sarah Bethe Nelson - Weird Glow LP


Burger Records

With her breathy voice and knack for catchy but artful melodies, Sarah
Bethe Nelson sounded like a precocious indie pop newcomer with the
release of her 2015 album, Fast Moving Clouds. The truth is Nelson was
a seasoned veteran of the California music scene when her solo debut
finally expanded her reputation outside her hometown. Nelson was born
in Sacramento, California in 1977 and grew up in the nearby foothills.
In 2004, she formed the roots rock band Prairiedog with Rusty Miller
of Jackpot; the group released its first album, To Set Your Calendars
on Fire, in 2006, and with the help of musician and producer Kelley
Stoltz, cut a second album, The Golden Hour, in 2011. Founded in
Sacramento, Prairiedog had settled in San Francisco before they
finally called it quits in 2013. Nelson then found herself with a
batch of songs that reflected a different creative direction than her
old band had. Many of the tunes were informed by Nelson's job as a
bartender at the Mission District tavern the Make Out Room. Teaming
with a handful of musicians she'd met through her days with Prairiedog
and her nights at the Make Out Room, Nelsonbegan crafting a moody and
expressive new sound, and she once again teamed with Stoltz to cut her
first solo project. Fast Moving Clouds was picked up for release by
the well-respected California indie label Burger Records, and it
immediately made an impression with bloggers and critics, especially
the song "Paying," written from the perspective of a woman working at
a watering hole confronting a man who has broken her heart and maxed
out his bar tab. Her follow-up, Oh, Evolution, was recorded by Phil
Manley (the Fresh & Onlys, Moon Duo) and released in early 2017. Her
new 2019 album "Weird Glow" is out on Burger Records in June.
